Man Accused of Sexually Assaulting 13-year-old Girl As She Walked to Bus
CHICAGO — After a 17-year-old girl in West Garfield Park managed to fight him off early Monday morning, Shawn Stubblefield got back in his white Cadillac and drove away, prosecutors said.
But less than two hours later, at 7:20 a.m., they said Stubblefield grabbed a 13-year-old girl on her way to an Austin bus stop and forced her inside the car.
"The defendant told the victim that he had a gun and made her perform oral sex on him by threatening to shoot her," Assistant State's Attorney Nicholas Kantas told a Cook County judge Friday.
After assaulting the child, Stubblefield "threatened to burn the victim's house down if she didn't give him money," Kantas said.
Stubblefield allegedly then drove to the girl's house to get the money, and held her backpack as she went inside. The victim immediately told family members of the assault, and they called police.
But Stubblefield fled, according to police. Two days later he allegedly tried to kidnap a 16-year-old walking to Oak Park and River Forest High School, Oak Park Police said. She managed to escape, and Stubblefield allegedly tried to grab another 13-year-old, this one on her way to school at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School.
The 28-year-old Maywood man was arrested two days later, Wednesday, in River Forest after he allegedly committed two similar crimes in Oak Park.
Stubblefield faces four counts of kidnapping, two counts of sexual assault and two counts of attempted sexual assault in four separate incidents.
He was ordered held in lieu of $1 million bond Friday for the Chicago attacks and was expected to appear in bond court Saturday for the Oak Park charges.
