The female suspect talked the 66-year-old woman into driving her from the Wal-Mart at 3030 N Rock Road to the Walgreens at 3770 N. Woodlawn. At that time, a Silver Cadillac STS driven by the male suspect followed the two women from the Wal-Mart parking lot to the Walgreens parking lot. The man then jumped into the victim's vehicle. 

That is where the woman pointed a gun at the victim and robbed her of her wedding ring and the cash in her handbag. The suspects then forced the woman to drive to a bank to withdraw $8,000. They then fled in the Cadillac.
