Man with 10 pending felony cases in 3 states robbed a woman near Union Station, Chicago police say

Davon Fullilove | Cook County sheriff’s office

CHICAGO — Davon Fullilove has a lot going on. As prosecutors charged him with robbing a woman in downtown Chicago this week, they told Judge Barbara Dawkins that Fullilove is a four-time convicted felon with five felony theft cases pending in the suburbs, three pending felony cases in Wisconsin, and two pending felonies in Indiana.

His local problems began on October 10, when prosecutors charged him with stealing phones and purses from women in the suburbs between May 6 and October 9, according to court records. Once he was in custody, Chicago police picked him up from the jail to face charges for allegedly robbing a woman in their jurisdiction.

Fullilove, 27, met the 24-year-old woman on a dating app and offered her a ride to Union Station on June 5, CPD officers wrote in their arrest report. As they neared the train station, Fullilove pulled the car over.

“I am not going to lie,” he allegedly told the woman as he pulled a gun from under his seat. “Leave your phone and get out of the car, or I am going to shoot you.”

He was generous enough to give the woman permission to get her travel bag out of his car, but then he drove away before she could retrieve it, the report said.

Later, Fullilove used the woman’s phone to transfer money from her Chime and CashApp accounts to himself, prosecutors alleged this week. CPD offices arrested Fullilove after the woman identified him in a photo line-up.

Judge Barbara Dawkins ordered him into custody as a safety threat.

The suburban cases accuse Fullilove of stealing phones, purses, and an Apple Watch from victims at Beaubien Woods Forest Preserve on May 6, July 21, and October 9; from a CVS in Oak Forest on August 25; and from Honey Bear Cafe in Lansing on June 3.

His Cook County felony convictions are for burglary: two in 2019 and another in 2019, according to court files.
