|Hammond (Chicago Police Dept)|
Hammond is accused of being one of three men who robbed the off-duty officer and the officer's wife around 9:25PM Saturday in the 3100 block of North Ravenswood.
Prosecutors say Hammond was identified as the offender who pointed a gun at the officer and the woman while other offenders robbed the couple.
Police say Hammond made incriminating comments to detectives after he was taken into custody around 11:30PM Tuesday in the 1400 block of North Halsted Street.
Hammond allegedly told cops that he and some companions came to Lakeview via CTA on Saturday and proceeded to steal a car, and commit at least one other robbery before holding up the off-duty officer, according to court records.
The status of charges against a juvenile who was questioned in connection with Saturday's crimes was not immediately available.
