$750K bond for man charged with pointing gun at police

A man charged with pointing a gun at Chicago Police officers during a burglary investigation early Sunday in North Lawndale has been ordered held on a $750,000 bond.

Ogden District officers responding to a call of a burglary-in-progress at 4:17 a.m. at a home in the 1900 block of South Trumbull spotted 39-year-old Bernal Eubanks, who matched the description of the suspect, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

Eubanks refused to comply with the officers’ orders and instead moved to the corner of the porch area, where he pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officers, police said.

The officers were then able to gain control of the weapon and Eubanks, police said. No officers were injured.

Eubanks, of the 3300 block of West Congress Parkway, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer with a weapon, one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and one count of criminal trespass to real property, police said.

Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered him held on a $750,000 bond at a hearing Monday, according to court records. Eubanks will be back in court Aug. 24 for a preliminary hearing.
