RIVER FOREST POLICE DEPARTMENT
Disorderly Conduct Arrest---Case #13-7605
For Immediate Release
October 11, 2013
The River Forest Police Department has announced the arrest of a 31-year old Oak Park man for his sole involvement in a Disorderly Conduct incident, which occurred at approximately 8:10 am on October 8, 2013 on the 7300 block of Division. A juvenile victim reported that a male subject in a silver vehicle had approached her while walking to school, and told her to get into his car. He then demanded that the victim get into the car again and she refused. The subject then drove away from the scene.
The victim was alarmed by the events and RFPD was notified. The juvenile victim was able to provide a detailed description of the offender and added that she had seen the subject in the 7-11 store, located at 1140 N. Harlem, just prior to the incident. The following morning, RFPD uniform and plain clothes units saturated the area, and obtained video footage of the subject from the 7-11 store. At approximately 10:30 am on October 9, 2013, officers located the subject as he pulled into the 1140 N. Harlem parking lot. The subject, Hamad Hafiz Almarri 31-years old of 629 S. Harvey in Oak Park, related to officers that he had attempted to give a ride to a female student the day prior. Almarri was transported to the station. After further investigation, Almarri was charged with one count of Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct and has a November court date pending at the 4th District Maybrook Courthouse.
“The victim should be praised for her courageous decision to not get into the offender’s vehicle and for her confidence to notify police. This was excellent police work done by officers who wanted to ensure safe passage for students and other pedestrians walking on the public streets in the Village of River Forest.”
Deputy Chief James O’Shea
