A Marengo man has been charged after he allegedly threatened to take a police officer’s gun and shoot two officers in the head in Marengo, court records show.
Benjamin M. Albor, 62, of Marengo, was charged with two counts of threatening a public official, a Class 3 felony.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Albor made a threat against a Marengo police officer around 8 p.m. on February 12.
Albor said he was going to take the officer’s Glock firearm, stick it to the officer’s head and “put a bullet through [his] head,” according to the complaint.
Albor also allegedly made a second threat to another Marengo police officer.
“Once you let me out of here, I’m going to head butt you and cause you great bodily harm,” Albor said, according to the complaint.
Albor then said, “I’m going to stick your 9mm in your ear, take a round and pop it in your head,” the complaint said.
The threats were made in relation to an arrest that the officers made on Albor.
Charges were filed against Albor on Thursday and an arrest warrant was issued. He is not in custody yet.
In December 2020, Albor was arrested after he battered an Oakwood Hills police officer and said that he was going to “put a round” in the officer’s head during a disturbance call.
Albor pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in that case.
