|Kimble-Dillard (Chicago Police Department)
One of the men arrested for allegedly battering a victim during a 3-on-1 tussle at the Night Ministry weekly outreach recently is no stranger to local police officers.
Battery and reckless conduct charges against Rojah Kimble-Dillard in connection with the Night Ministry incident were dropped after the victim failed to show up in court.
But Cook County Criminal Court records show that Kimble-Dillard, 22, has a long relationship with our neighborhood.
He was sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in a May 2011 strong arm robbery at School and Sheffield. He was paroled just before Christmas last year.
Kimble-Dillard, whose address of record is the Franciscan Outreach in Wicker Park, still faces battery charges for allegedly hitting a 22-year-old Broadway Youth Center client as CWB reported on July 23. According to court filings, Kimble-Dillard was specifically identified by the victim as being “the subject who headbutted him earlier.”
• When 19th district officers stopped Kimble-Dillard for riding a bike on a sidewalk in the 3500 block of Wilton recently, they had to arrest him because he had no identification which would allow them to simply issue a ticket.
• Charges of criminal trespassing to an apartment in the 800 block of Newport in May 2011 were dropped when the victim failed to show up in court.
• Charges were also dropped for alleged criminal trespassing at the Belmont CTA station in May 2011 after the CTA failed to appear in court.
Kimble-Dillard is scheduled to remain on parole status for the 2011 robbery until December 20, 2015.
As of this afternoon, two persons are still facing battery charges in connection with the Night Ministry incident: 18-year-old Keonte Stevens, also known as Mariah Stevens and “Brianna”; and 18-year-old Randy “Paris” White. They both have addresses in the South Side’s Washington Heights neighborhood.
