Cory M. Wolf, 44, of McHenry.

A McHenry man has been convicted in a “vicious attack” and attempted carjacking on a motorist that left the victim injured in the parking lot of a CVS in McHenry.

Cory M. Wolf, 44, of McHenry, was charged in April 2020 with attempted aggravated robbery, aggravated battery in a public place and two counts of criminal damage to property.

A grand jury later indicted Wolf on an additional charge of aggravated battery.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court said that Wolf physically attacked a man in the parking lot of the CVS, 3900 Elm Street in McHenry, just after midnight on April 16, 2020.

Wolf caused bodily harm to the victim by striking him in the face and neck numerous times, causing a bloody nose and lacerations, the complaint said.

Wolf then threw the victim to the pavement, causing cuts and lacerations to the victim’s arms, the complaint said.

During the attack, Wolf, who was wearing a mask, indicated he was armed with a gun and attempted to steal the victim’s car keys and 2013 Ford Focus, the complaint said.

The victim’s vehicle and another person’s vehicle incurred damage, court records show.

Prosecutors said the incident was captured on video surveillance and officers arrested Wolf the same night.

Wolf was appointed a public defender and his bond was initially set at $50,000 but reduced to $30,000, court records show.

He was released from the McHenry County Jail at the end of March, nearly three years after his arrest, after someone posted 10% of his bond.

A bench trial was held last Thursday and McHenry County Judge James Cowlin announced his verdict on Wednesday.

Cowlin found Wolf guilty on all charges except for one misdemeanor count of criminal damage to property.

Cowlin described the evidence against Wolf as overwhelming with the video evidence corroborating that Wolf was “lying in wait” for the victim before the “vicious attack.”

Wolf’s bond was revoked on Wednesday following the verdict. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 7.
