|Sowell (Cook Co. Sheriff's Office)|
Robbery Parolee Arrested—For RobberyParoled on November 18 after serving a fraction of his 3-year sentence for robbery, Simon Sowell has already managed to get arrested and charged with robbery again.
Sowell is accused of shoving a 26-year-old Portage Park woman to the ground at Clark and Belmont on December 20th and robbing her of a Galaxy Note 3. As CWB previously reported, quick-acting 19th district officers managed to take Sowell into custody before the first 911 calls reporting the robbery were received.
|Brown (Cook Co. Sheriff's Office)|
Birds of a FeatherHere are a couple of names that should be familiar to CWB readers. William Brown and Steven Haymon were arrested after allegedly threatening to beat a man inside the Merlo Library, 644 W Belmont, on December 16.
Brown, of the Near West Side, and Haymon, who continues to use the Broadway Youth Center as his home address, allegedly showed up at the library and threatened to beat a man at the request of his ex-girlfriend.
|Haymon (Cook Co. Sheriff's Office)|
He received a 60 day sentence this summer after being found in a stolen car at Roscoe and Halsted.
Haymon was also charged with battery after he allegedly pushed a doorman who refused to let him enter Roscoe’s Tavern in October.
Brown was paroled in August after serving just over one year of a 4-year sentence for his part in a January 2013 robbery at Belmont and Sheffield. A police sergeant was injured while arresting suspects in that case. Brown's parole is scheduled to continue until August 2016.
