Forest Park police, in conjunction with the West Suburban Drug and Gang Enforcement Task Force and Chicago Police Department’s Vehicular Hijacking Task Force, arrested a 29-year-old Chicago man accused of multiple armed robberies in Forest Park earlier this year.
Dominique Q. Brown, of Chicago, was taken into custody near Wells Street and Garfield Boulevard in Chicago on March 25. He was charged one day later with two counts of armed robbery and one count of aggravated robbery. According to Forest Park police, Brown was already on parole for a 2016 armed robbery at the time of his arrest.
According to police, Brown perpetrated two armed robberies at the 7-Eleven convenience store, 7749 Roosevelt Road, on Feb. 5 and 7, and was being investigated for his involvement in a third robbery at a different 7-Eleven (205 Harlem Ave.) on Feb. 10. Brown allegedly displayed a handgun in two of the three robberies.
Per a police report at the time of the incident, the thief in the Feb. 10 robbery was quickly located after a tracker was placed in a bag of stolen money. When police caught up to the apparent thief’s vehicle near Central Avenue and Jackson Boulevard in Chicago, however, the suspect fled on foot and was able to elude capture.
Brown was incarcerated at the Cook County Jail as of April 5 with a total bond of $1.6 million. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 14.
