Kim Foxx Continues Making Cook County Unsafe

And Sean Casten Says Nothing.

Orland Park, IL— A Chicago man has been arrested and charged after holding two employees at gunpoint Monday morning at Redline Towing in Chicago Ridge.

According to the police, he was reportedly armed with a handgun and an assault rifle.The assault rifle had a fully loaded magazine and he was carrying a second fully loaded rifle magazine on him. In addition, he had a loaded handgun and several additional loaded magazines on him.

About 15 minutes after police arrived, Anan Abudayeh agreed to exit the business.

After many hours of review, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office approved charges for Abudayeh of aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated UUW and aggravated assault.

Mr. Abudayeh appeared in court Tuesday morning, where he was released on a $50,000 I-bond.

“I want to thank the police for their quick and skilled response. This was a situation that could have easily escalated and ended in tragedy,” said Keith Pekau, Mayor of Orland Park and candidate for Congress (IL-06). “But once again, a violent criminal caught in the act by police is back out on the street on a low bond from Kim Foxx’s office. This practice undoes all the work police officers did in this dangerous situation, and makes our streets less safe. 

“Under my leadership, the Orland Park Village Board called for Kim Foxx’s resignation. I am renewing that demand today. Kim Foxx needs to resign. And Sean Casten needs to stop looking the other way. This happened in his district and this isn’t leadership. He co-sponsored the George Floyd Act that would have made Kim Foxx’s governance the model for the nation. He needs to put politics aside and disavow Foxx and the ideology that has led to out of control crime. He needs to stop protecting Kim Foxx and call for her resignation. Cook County families and businesses should be able to expect their government – at a minimum – to provide public safety.”
