Prosecutors have charged a man with using a skateboard to beat and rob a man in Millennium Park.

Jameil Williams, 25, is accused of chasing down a 24-year-old Norridge man, taking the victim’s skateboard, then beating the man with it in the park at 7:15 p.m. on Sept. 23.

After beating the victim, Williams stole valuables from the man’s fanny pack and fled the 300 block of East Randolph, prosecutors said.

The victim identified Williams in a photo line-up, according to police records, and cops took him into custody on Oct. 4 after recognizing him during a routine patrol on the 1100 block of South Wabash.

Prosecutors charged Williams with Class X felony armed robbery and felony aggravated battery in a public place. He is being held without bail.

Williams recently completed parole after serving time for robbing a 58-year-old man of cigarettes and a Ventra card in March 2016, according to court records.
