A key witness painted a heartless picture of the man accused of beating two women with a baseball bat.

Convicted get-away driver Marcy Cruz testified today against alleged attacker Heriberto Viramontes.

Viramontes  is charged in the 2010 beating of Stacy Jurich and Natasha McShane in Bucktown.

Cruz says she smoked pot in a van while he went to rob them.

She says he was gone long enough for one song to play on the radio then came back with two purses.

Cruz’s father says she’s truly sorry.
