An off-duty officer, on the force for 21 years, was taken into custody for what the arrest report called “aggravated criminal sexual abuse by family member.”  But when he was charged later that day, it was only for domestic battery, a misdemeanor.

A man has been charged with shooting someone during a robbery in Woodlawn and then trying to carjack a woman nearby, according to Chicago police.

Curtis Edgleston, 22, was arrested less than 10 minutes after the Wednesday evening shooting, police said.

Edgleston first robbed a 55-year-old man in the 6200 block of South Cottage Grove around 7 p.m. and then shot him in the face, seriously wounding him, police said.

As he ran away, he tried to carjack a 25-year-old woman nearby but was unsuccessful, police said.

Edgleston, from suburban Blue Island, was expected in court later Friday on charges of attempted murder, armed robbery and unauthorized use of a weapon.
