A Chicago man who was charged with holding a woman against her will in a Cary home and strangling her last month now faces new charges for sexually assaulting her and recording it.
The Cary Police Department responded to a 911 call around 3:30 p.m. January 20 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 located 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.
Creekmore battered the woman on several occasions and threatened to kill her numerous times, Naydenoff said at the time of the incident.
The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office initially 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.
On Wednesday, the state’s attorney’s office filed new charges against Creekmore that included four counts of criminal sexual assault and additional counts of domestic battery.
The new charges allege that Creekmore sexually assaulted the woman multiple times on January 18 and 19. He also recorded the assaults on his cellphone, court documents said.
In 2015, Creekmore was sentenced to seven years in prison after he was one of ten suspects who pleaded guilty to human trafficking young women in Chicago. He was released in 2018 after having served less than three years in prison.
Creekmore remains held in the McHenry County jail on a $275,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 3, according to court records.
