24-year-old Deonte Jackson became verbally aggressive toward the victims outside of Taco Burrito Palace, 3507 North Halsted, around 5:30 a.m., police said. He then followed the three to a nearby parking lot while clutching a knife near his waistband, asking “Do you have a problem?” according to prosecutors.
