Riverdale Police have concluded the investigation and arrest of Deandre Wilson of Park Forest. On April 05, 2017 Wilson is accused of grabbing a female while she was walking in 14200 block of School St. and pulling her into the alley. The female victim was robbed and sexually assaulted while Wilson threatened her with a hand gun. Wilson fled the scene prior to Police arrival. On July 06, 2017 Wilson is accused of grabbing a female by her neck while she was walking in 14100 block of Clark St. Wilson then forced the female into the alley while threatening her with a handgun. The victim began to fight back and was able to break free from Wilson. The victim began screaming alerting a nearby resident. RPD received a 911 phone call from that resident who was able to see Wilson attempting to flee the area. The resident continued to relay his direction of travel and was taken into custody by RPD. Riverdale detectives began working the case and alerted nearby communities to see if they have had any similar incidents. Park Forest Police detectives responded to RPD and Identified Wilson as a suspect in a Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault and Armed Robbery which occurred on May 15, 2017. Wilson is charge with two counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault, one count of Aggravated Kidnapping and one count of Aggravated Robbery in connection with the two Riverdale Occurrences. Wilson was also charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault and Armed Robbery which occurred in Park Forest. Wilson currently remains in the custody of the Cook County Sheriff’s Department and is NOT eligible for bond. This cooperation between two departments effectively removed a dangerous offender from the streets. The incident also shows the importance in the community being aware and reporting crime as it happens. The public is reminded that all persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
