COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A suburban woman is accused of attacking a Chicago teen with a cooking pan, knife and mace during a robbery Friday.
Autumn Leak, 20, of the 12200 block of Fairway Circle in Blue Island, was charged with armed robbery and appeared in bond court on Sunday.
Leak met up with her "on-and-off" teenage girlfriend on Friday at a CTA stop near the girl's home, according to Assistant State's Attorney Bridget O'Brien. The victim is 16, according to a police report.
Leak went back with the girl to her home in the 3000 block of West Jackson Boulevard in East Garfield Park, and invited someone else to come over, O'Brien said.
Leak's accomplice arrived and the three went inside a room, where the unidentified co-assailant pushed the teen onto a bed and held her there, O'Brien said.
Leak told the girl not to move, and during the course of the robbery, the teen was cut by a knife and mace was sprayed in her face, O'Brien said. A cooking pan was also used as a weapon sometime during the robbery, according to the report.
The victim's cellphone along with two computers and two Xbox video-game systems were stolen, according to prosecutors and the report.
The victim suffered a blunt-force injury to her head and a cut to her right arm that required eight stitches, according the report. She was treated and released from Rush University Medical Center, the report states.
Leak was arrested at her home on Saturday after being identified by the victim as one of the two people who robbed her, according to the report.
Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered Leak held on a $300,000 bail.
