Ewing, 32, allegedly poured bottle of urine on woman at CTA station on same day
CHICAGO (WLS) -- A man has been charged in an attempted kidnapping in the West Loop that was caught on camera last weekend, Chicago police said Wednesday.
Police said Quavon Ewing, 32 of Chicago is also charged in connection with two aggravated battery incidents against women that also occurred on the same day in the 100-block of West Roosevelt Road and in the 600-block of South State Street, police said.
Last Friday, Quavon Ewing was charged with failing to register as a sex offender. On Saturday, he was released from custody. Then prosecutors say he committed a string of crimes within an hour on Sunday morning.
Police said Ewing was in a minivan Sunday morning when he grabbed a 45-year-old woman near Sangamon and Adams streets.
In court Wednesday, prosecutors described the incident that was caught on video, saying Ewing grabbed a woman and tried to shove her in a van. She was able to get away with the help of witnesses who ran over to help.
"So I'm screaming, screaming, he's pulling me towards the van," the victim said. "I'm at the door, I'm grabbing the door. He's knocking my head against the door, trying to knock me out."
Ewing is also charged with two counts of aggravated battery.
Prosecutor said in one case, he grabbed a woman who was able to get away in the 100 block of West Roosevelt Road.
Soon after, Ewing is accused of attacking another woman in the 600 block of South State Street, police said.
In the State Street attack, prosecutors said Ewing poured a bottle of urine on a woman at the Harrison Street station on the Red Line. Police released the surveillance photos, and Ewing was later arrested.
Ewings bail was set at $600,000 for failing to register as a sex offender and the kidnapping and aggravated battery charges. Ewing was ordered to not have any contact with victims, witnesses or use the CTA.
