COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A Cook County judge ordered a cross-dresser held on $150,000 bond Wednesday after he allegedly robbed another man with a box cutter last month.
Lewis Page, 43, was charged with armed robbery with a dangerous weapon, a Class X felony.
According to prosecutors, Page robbed a man with a box cutter on Feb. 13. During the robbery, Page jumped on top of the man, cut his right back pocket and took his wallet, prosecutors said. Page also cut the man's right leg, and the man required six stitches, prosecutors said.
The attack happened on the sidewalk in the 3100 block of West Madison Street in the city's East Garfield Park neighborhood, according to court records.
The victim described his attacker as "a male wearing a wig and women's clothing" and later identified Page in a lineup, according to court documents. Appearing in court dressed the same way, Page listened as Cook County Judge Laura Sullivan ordered him held on $150,000 bond.
Prosecutors said Page has six felony convictions, including convictions for prostitution.
