CPD detectives honored for capturing man accused of terrorizing Lincoln Park, DePaul slashing suspect

CHICAGO (WLS) -- More than a dozen Chicago Police detectives were honored Tuesday morning for their bravery after working together to take down a dangerous man suspected of terrorizing Lincoln Park.

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation honors officers each month as part of their "Officer of the Month Program."

For the month of November, 10 Chicago police detectives, two sergeants and an officer were all honored for their work putting that suspect behind bars.

The law enforcement officers caught the suspect in Texas after tracking him down for alleged crimes in Chicago.

Authorities said the suspect attacked victims in Lincoln Park, was involved in carjackings and even burned the vehicles before leaving the state.

In July, the man also allegedly attacked a woman in Lincoln Park, almost killed her after slitting her throat during an assault near the DePaul campus.
