Man Charged With Carjacking Chicago Police Sergeant On South Side
CHICAGO (STMW) – A Greater Grand Crossing man was charged in connection with carjacking an off-duty Chicago Police sergeant in the South Shore neighborhood two weeks ago.
Christopher Jones, 19, of the 1300 block of East 69th Street, was charged with vehicular hijacking, theft, residential burglary, theft of lost or mislaid property, vehicular invasion and aggravated battery with great bodily harm, police said.
Jones was initially arrested Thursday in the 6700 block of South Jeffery Boulevard for an unrelated burglary that occurred Aug. 25 in the 6100 block of South Kimbark, police said.
After an investigation, Jones was also charged with allegedly carjacking an off-duty Chicago Police sergeant on Sept. 6, police said.
The suspect took the sergeant’s 2006 Infiniti QX56 from him at 10:18 p.m. in the 6900 block of East End Avenue, police said.
The sergeant suffered “minor injuries” in the confrontation and was treated at the scene, police said.
Jones is expected Saturday in bond court.
