Bond was set at $250,000 Wednesday for a man initially suspected of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend last weekend in west suburban Oak Park.

Sherman Henderson, 31, faces a felony charge of home invasion, according to a statement from the Village of Oak Park.

A witness saw a woman being forced into a vehicle in the 600 block of Forest Avenue in Oak Park about 11:50 p.m. Sunday and called 911, according tothe statement.

A River Forest police officer saw the car heading westbound on Chicago Avenue, but the driver got away. The officer did get the license plate number.

Officers responded to the home on Forest Avenue and found that a back door had been forced open. Thirty-year-old Lindsay A. Bowman had been house-sitting at that address and was missing.

Bowman was later found at a suburban hospital and was being treated for minor injuries, according to police.

Henderson, accompanied by his attorney, turned himself in at the Oak Park police station Monday evening, according to the statement.

Judge James Gavin ordered Henderson held on a $250,000 bond on Wednesday, according to Cook County Circuit Court records. He is due back in court Dec. 4.
