SHARE Elgin man charged with attempted robbery

An Elgin man is facing multiple charges after an attempted robbery in the northwest suburb.

Police were called to a home in the 600 block of Cookane Avenue at 3:04 p.m. Jan. 26, according to a statement from Elgin police.

A male resident told officers he was inside the house when a man—later identified as 26-year-old Raymond H. Bonner, Jr.—knocked on the door, demanded money and displayed a handgun, police said. The resident immediately closed the door and called police.

Detectives identified Bonner as the suspect, and he was found in a vehicle near Wellington Avenue and National Street about 8:20 p.m. Thursday, police said. He was arrested without incident and had a handgun and ammunition on him at the time.

Bonner, of the 500 block of Wellington Avenue, is charged with one felony count of attempted armed robbery with a firearm, three felony counts of unlawful use or possession of a weapon and a misdemeanor count of aggravated assault, police said.

He was expected to appear in Kane County bond court Saturday, according to police.
