Wednesday, April 21, 2010 — Bond was set today at $100,000 for a Chicago Heights man who was arrested outside the home of a woman he had repeatedly called and threatened to kill, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart announced Wednesday.

Allen HowardAllen J. Howard, 21, of the 100 block of East 15th Street, is charged with aggravated stalking and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, both felonies. He was arrested around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in Ford Heights, as he sat in a parked car just a short distance away from the victim’s home. Sheriff’s police officers found him asleep in the driver’s seat, with a loaded .25-caliber semi-automatic handgun in his hand.

The victim, who knew Howard socially, called sheriff’s police after receiving approximately 11 threatening phone calls from him. Police came to her home and interviewed her around 1 a.m. and while they were there, Howard called again. She put the phone on speaker so the officers could hear and as they listened, Howard threatened to kill the woman multiple times. He also told her he knew police were at her house at that time, because he was watching them. He said he was upset with the victim because he was arrested Saturday in Matteson on a warrant for domestic battery.

Based on his threats, the responding officers began to canvass the area as they left, but they immediately found Howard in his vehicle, parked just east of her home.

He was arrested without incident. Howard appeared in bond court Wednesday in Markham. His next court date is set for May 12 in Markham.
