Jail escapee faces federal charges for bank robbery

December 2, 2011 (JOLIET, Ill.)

A grand jury Friday returned a five-count indictment against Robert Maday, who used to live in Elk Grove Village. He is now at Stateville Prison.

Two years ago, Maday was being transported from a courthouse when he disarmed two officers and took off.

Police say Maday carjacked two women and robbed a bank in Bloomingdale. He was arrested after a high-speed chase the next day.
