A reputed gang member was ordered held without bail Saturday, charged with robbing and killing a 68-year-old Logan Square man returning home from work in late 2013.

Joshua Johnson, 23, a twice-convicted burglar, was charged with murder and attempted armed robbery when he appeared in court Friday in Rolling Meadows in an unrelated case. An alert had been issued to be on the lookout for him.

Johnson and another gang member approached Cayetano Sandoval after he parked his car in the 1900 block of North Spaulding Avenue around 2 a.m. on Dec. 12, 2013, after coming home from his job at a bakery, Cook County prosecutors said Saturday.

They said Johnson told Sandoval to give them his money and began hitting him and that the other man, who has not been charged, took out a gun and began shooting as Johnson held Sandoval down. Sandoval was shot five times.

Several people saw what happened, according to, prosecutors, who said Johnson admitted he hit Sandoval and held him down while his friend shot him.

Court records list two addresses for Johnson — one in Elk Grove Village, the other on the South Side.
