Dylan Sanders | CPD

A man has received probation for his role in the carjacking and robbery of a delivery driver in Uptown two years ago.

Dylan Sanders, 21, pleaded guilty to one count of robbery in exchange for the two-year probation sentence. Prosecutors dropped aggravated battery and other charges in the deal.

Around 10:30 p.m. on April 11th, 2019, a sushi delivery driver reported that up to ten teenagers attacked him as he made a delivery near Magnolia Avenue and Gunnison Street. During the attack, some members of the group drove away with his car, which had been left idling in the street, according to a police report.

Police said the victim, who suffered cuts to his face, sought help at a nearby bar.

Sanders was arrested two days after the April 11, 2019, carjacking as he allegedly drove the victim’s Honda Fit in Rogers Park.

It was the 13th time he had been arrested in Chicago in 14 months, according to CPD records.

Judge Catherine Haberkorn oversaw the carjacking case.
