Jones asked the victim if she wanted to, “hang out” and she agreed to let him pick her up, police said. Once inside the vehicle, Jones sexually assaulted her.

On Friday, Orland Park police detectives arrested Jones at his Evergreen Park home, police said. The Cook County state’s attorney reviewed the case and charged Jones with criminal sexual assault.

Jones’ bond was set at $750,000 Sunday, police said.
