A man accused of in April has turned himself in, according to a press release issued by Elmhurst Police Chief Dominic Panico on Wednesday.
An ongoing investigation led police to Asante R. McKinley, 18, of Elmhurst, who has been charged with theft from a person and assault.
At about 9:45 p.m. Saturday, April 14, employees of the Domino's Pizza at 1036 S. York Road took a pizza order for delivery to the 100 block of South Rex Boulevard. At about 10:17 p.m., as the driver attempted to deliver the pizzas, he was approached by a man in the driveway of the residence. The suspect struggled with the driver, then took the bag containing the pizzas and fled on foot.
Police said that about one week earlier, a similar incident occurred in Elmhurst involving the same Domino's location, but it was not reported at the time.
This is not McKinley's first encounter with law enforcement. According to public records, he pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and prowling in Elmhurst in 2010, and to possession of cannabis in Lombard in 2011.
McKinley turned himself in at DuPage County Jail July 30 for the most recent charges. He was released on $5,000 bond, and his next court date is Monday, Aug. 13.
