Two men have been charged after robbing a woman who let them into her car.

Police say a woman was sitting in her car on Mayfair Rd. smoking a cigarette when Jayuntae Gregory and Phillip Mann approached her, showing a handgun and demanding that she open the car doors.

Gregory and Mann asked the woman to drive them to Mayfair Mall to which she said yes because she was going there herself anyways.

Once on the way to the mall, one of the suspects stuck the handgun into the woman's ribs and told her she was being robbed, while the suspect in the backseat gave her directions to turn right onto Capitol Dr.

The men led the woman to an alley where they took her cell phone, $4 and a $100 Visa gift card.

Both Gregory and Mann then fled the alley.

Wauwatosa police detectives later recovered surveillance video that showed the two men matching the description from the woman, running after the robbery.

Gregory and Mann are charged with armed robbery for which they face up to $100,000 in fines and/or 40 years in prison.
