SHARE Chicago man charged with beating girlfriend in Wheaton

A 21-year-old Chicago man was charged Monday with beating his girlfriend in west suburban Wheaton after being arrested by the top law enforcement officer in DuPage County.

The DuPage County sheriff’s office received a 911 call from a screaming woman who stated she had just been battered.

The woman’s boyfriend, Robert Brown, ran away prior to police arrival but was soon apprehended about a mile away from the incident, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

Sheriff John Zaruba, who was in the area responding to the call, saw Brown on foot near the crime scene, noticed he matched the suspect’s description, and detained him until he was positively identified as the suspect, police said.

Brown, of the 2100 block of West Randolph, was charged with domestic battery and possession of marijuana. He was scheduled to appear in bond court Monday afternoon in Wheaton.
