------------------------------------------------------------
A South Side man is charged with a string of felonies in connection with last week’s rape, robbery, and abduction of a Wrigleyville woman, police said.

Fingerprints recovered from the victim’s vehicle and surveillance images of the offender using the victim’s ATM card led police to 31-year-old Jarqueese O'Brian Henigan, according to Chicago police.

He is charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault with a weapon; aggravated kidnaping-inflicting harm; armed robbery with a firearm; aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm; armed habitual criminal; possession of a controlled substance; and resisting police.

Henigan is also being held on an out of state warrant.

Police arrested Henigan Friday in the 10300 block of South Halsted.

Investigators say Henigan confronted a 24-year-old woman as she walked out of her garage and walked toward her residence in the 3700 block of North Fremont Street around 8:20 p.m. on March 9.

Henigan approached her from behind, forced the woman into the trunk of her car and raped her, police said.

With the victim in the trunk, he proceeded to drive to the Far South Side where he tried to withdraw money from her account at several ATMs.

Around 10 p.m, Henigan crashed the woman’s car into a tree 11516 South Throop and ran away, according to police.

In a community alert issued the next day, detectives said the case was “similar and MAY [involve] the same offender" as a February 28th case in which a woman was raped at gunpoint in a car near Barry and Racine in Lakeview.

Henigan is currently only charged in the March 9 case.

The February 28th attacker is described as a black man between 25- and 30-years-old, 5’9” tall, about 160 pounds, with short black hair, and a medium complexion. He had a short beard or scruff on his chin and a mole on his face. He was wearing a brown or green colored vest, a black button-downed shirt with white markings on the bottom and dark colored pants.

Henigan is due in bond court today.
