A Huntley man and two Woodstock men have been charged with robbing and battering a woman inside a Woodstock residence, according to police.

Jonathan S. Schneiderman, 26, of the 10700 block of Woodstock Street in Huntley and Woodstock residents Lee M. Cruz, 27, and Kevin J. Loomis, 30, both of the 9900 block of McConnell Road were charged with robbery, mob action and battery, police said.

McHenry County sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call from a gas station on the 9900 block of McConnell Road during the early morning hours on Sept. 14 shortly after the robbery occurred.

The victim told authorities she had been robbed and assaulted at a residence in the Woodstock area, and Loomis and Cruz were immediately identified as offenders, according to authorities. Police took Loomis into custody a short time after the 911 call, and a warrant was issued for Cruz.

Members of the McHenry County sheriff's office fugitive apprehension unit along with investigators and deputies located Cruz at a residence in Huntley Tuesday and discovered Schneiderman at the residence. Police said they identified him as the third offender involved with the robbery and took him into custody as well.

Loomis and Schneiderman were both also charged with manufacture or delivery of between 30 and 500 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cruz and Schneiderman are being held on $75,000 bail and Loomis is being held on $50,000, according to jail records.
