Police Charge Chicago Man in Two Robberies and a Burglary

On June 27, Evanston Police charged a 45-year-old resident of Chicago in three separate incidents, two robberies and a burglary.

The first incident, aggravated robbery, too place on the evening of April 10 at the Dunkin Donuts located in the 1900 block of Dempster Street. The offender ordered a small coffee from the clerk, a juvenile. When the male juvenile clerk opened cash drawer to accept payment, the suspect announced the robbery and threatened to shoot the clerk and demanded money. The clerk complied and the suspect fled on foot with the money and coffee. No weapon was displayed. No one was injured.

The second incident, robbery too place just after noon on April 27 at the Main Beauty Supply in the 800 block of Dodge Avenue. A 30-year-old female employee located an offender behind the counter, and he instructed her not to say anything. The two struggled over the cash drawer, and the suspect was able to gain control of the cash drawers and the money contained in them; he then fled on foot. There was no weapon involved, and no one was injured.

The third incident was a commercial burglary. At 3:19 a.m. on April 30, police responded to CW Mini Mart, located in the 1900 block of Church Street, for a call of a burglary. Officers found the front door had been shattered with a rock. The offender, later learned to the same suspect, was no longer on scene. The owner said the cash drawer containing money was taken. 

Evanston Police Detectives investigated all three incidents, interviewed witnesses, reviewed video surveillance and analyzed evidence. All three investigations the same suspect, who was in the custody of the Cook County Department of Corrections on unrelated charges. He was transported to the Evanston Police Department on June 27 and charged with one felony count of aggravated robbery, one felony count of robber and one felony count of burglary.  The next court date and bond are pending.
