Suburban police say a man accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend turned himself in Monday night.
Police said Sherman Henderson was taken into custody after arriving at the Oak Park Police Station with his attorney. No charges had been filed as of Tuesday but an investigation was ongoing, police said.
Lindsay Bowman, 30, was house-sitting an Oak Park home in the 600 block of Forest Avenue Sunday when authorities say a man came into the residence and abducted her.
Emergency dispatchers received a 911 call just before midnight from a witness who said they saw Bowman being forced into a vehicle by a man before the car fled the area. Responding officers arrived at the home to find a rear door that had been broken into.
The man was identified as 31-year-old Sherman Henderson, Bowman’s former boyfriend, whose last known residence was in Chicago’s North Side neighborhood of Irving Park at 2900 W. Irving Park Rd.
Police say Henderson and Bowman were last seen traveling westbound on North Avenue near Wolf Road in Northlake in a silver 2006 Dodge Magnum with Illinois license plate number K134 338.
Bowman was found safe Monday afternoon at an area hospital, where she was being treated for minor injuries. The 2006 Dodge Magnum was also located at the hospital.
Henderson has a history of violence, according to police, including previous arrests for domestic battery and unlawful use of a weapon.
Police said they planned to conduct additional interviews with Henderson and the victim.
