MUNSTER, Ind. – A Chicago man has allegedly eluded police nearly a month after he was named a suspect in a brutal attack on a disabled man near an Indiana Taco Bell restaurant.
According to Munster Police, the suspect, identified as Dominique W. Jones, remains at large.
The incident unfolded on May 4th in the 7900 block of Calumet Avenue, drawing immediate response from Munster Police.
According to reports, officers arriving at the scene discovered a 60-year-old disabled man who had allegedly intervened in a disturbance between a man and a woman near the traffic light just west of Staples. However, things escalated when an unidentified male assailant allegedly unleashed a series of punches, knocking the victim unconscious, and continued stomping on him.
The injured victim was transported to a local hospital, where medical professionals confirmed his injuries to be non-life-threatening.
Authorities later identified Jones, 28 of Chicago, as the perpetrator. On Thursday, the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office formally charged Jones with Aggravated Battery, classified as a level 3 felony, and Battery Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury, classified as a level 5 felony.
Anyone with information on Jones’ whereabouts are asked to contact local authorities or reach out to Detective Sergeant Tim Nosich at 219-836-6658 or email@example.com.
