24-year-old Deonte Jackson became verbally aggressive toward the victims outside of Taco Burrito Palace, 3507 North Halsted, around 5:30 a.m., police said. He then followed the three to a nearby parking lot while clutching a knife near his waistband, asking “Do you have a problem?” according to prosecutors.
Cops responded quickly and found Jackson moments later in the 700 block of West Brompton. Officers found a knife in his possession, and all three victims identified Jackson, cops said.
He is charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a deadly weapon. He is free on bail.
