A Chicago man is accused of holding a woman against her will in a Cary home for a day and strangling and battering her while repeatedly threatening to kill her, police said.
The Cary Police Department responded to a 911 call around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday from an unidentified woman.
Cary Deputy Police Chief Scott Naydenoff said that the woman stated she was with a man she feared would harm her and needed police assistance.
Officers were able to identify the woman calling and pinpoint her location.
The Cary Police Department and Crystal Lake Police Department were able to locate the woman and the male subject was placed under arrest for violating an order of protection.
Officers learned the man, identified as Jarrell A. Creekmore, 29, of the 7400 block of South Eggleston Avenue in Chicago, had a prior relationship with the victim.
Naydenoff said Creekmore held the victim against her will at her home in Cary for approximately one day.
“During that time period, the male battered the woman on several occasions, and several times threatened to kill her,” Naydenoff said.
The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office approved charges of aggravated domestic battery by strangulation, two counts of aggravated domestic battery, unlawful restraint, violation of an order of protection and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Creekmore was transported to the McHenry County jail where he is being held on a $250,000 bond. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be filed, police said.
Creekmore is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, according to court records.
