Roni Masri, 24, of Niles was charged with reckless driving and disorderly conduct Feb. 15 just before 1 a.m. The chain of events started when a woman living in the 7300 block of Crain reported a suspicious male wearing a dark jacket and baseball cap hanging around her building. When police arrived just before midnight on Feb. 14, they said they saw the man jogging down the street, interviewed him and later learned he was the victim's ex-boyfriend. He said he didn't know the woman, according to police.
A computer check showed the man had been involved in a domestic disturbance in July 2010 at the same location with the victim, according to the report.
The female victim just wanted him to leave the area, which he did, police said. But about 40 minutes later, at 12:40 a.m. on Feb. 15, a 19-year-old man phoned police saying he and the victim had left the residence to come to the police station to get a restraining order and Masri pulled next to them in another vehicle and was yelling, according to the report. The two victims said they were in fear of their lives, police relayed. The two victims turned into the Niles Police Station parking lot and Masri went east on Touhy, where police stopped him. His court date is March 19 in the Skokie branch of the Cook County courts.
