Tribune: No bail for teen charged in Roseland sex assault

[VIDEO] We helped to get information out through this blog's platform regarding this sexual assault that
ocurred in the Roseland Heights (also referred to as Roseland or Rosemoor in other mainstream media reports) neighborhood this past Wednesday.

An arrest has been made and you may have learned of this already if you joined 9th Ward Alderman Anthony Beale's mailing list. The recent message also included a note by Chicago State University President Wayne Watson. The excerpt below is from the Chicago Tribune:
A 17-year-old already on home monitoring for an unrelated crime has been ordered held with no bail after being charged as an adult in the sexual assault of a pregnant woman who was then locked in the trunk of her car, according to officials.

The teen -- identified in court as Aaron Parks -- was charged with sexually assaulting a 24-year-old woman around 12:20 p.m. Wednesday near 98th Street and Indiana Avenue, right by Chicago State University, where the woman was walking to her car, police said. The teen lives in the 600 block of East 100th Street, according to a release from the Chicago Police Department Office of News Affairs.

Although the names of juveniles charged as adults are public record, the Chicago Police Department does not officially release the names of any juvenile suspects.

The teen was ordered held on no bail Sunday by Cook County Associate Judge Peggy Chiampas.
BTW, I didn't intend to share the WGN report above video below but I just had to. What you hear in that report is something - that if you've been with us for a while - has come up from time to time.

The reporter - Courtney Gousman - just had to note although never identified a high school that's nearby the crime scene. That high school is Harlan Community Academy and Gousman noted that the teen in question may have attended this school.

So if this individual attended Harlan, why was he out of school at around 12:20 PM - especially if he was already on home monitoring? And the home monitoring was especially noted in the WGN report, how did authorities lose track of this troubled individual?

Regardless I'm glad this individual is off the streets!
