Kidnapping Charges Filed From Tuesday Pursuit in Lake County.

On Tuesday, December 7th, at approximately 7:40 p.m., the Lowell Regional Dispatch Center received a 911 call of a woman being held against her will in a vehicle by a known male. Quick work by dispatch resulted in information being relayed to troopers who were able to locate the suspect vehicle in seven minutes. Troopers attempted to stop the 2011 BMW and as an officer approached the vehicle, the driver fled in the vehicle at a high rate of speed.

After a brief pursuit, the vehicle stopped as a result of it striking stop sticks that additional troopers had placed along the roadway. Once stopped, the suspect, David J. Stewart, 24, from Dolton, IL, was taken into custody without further incident and the victim was taken to safety.

Kidnapping- Level 5 Felony

Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle- Level 6 Felony
