CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Algonquin police responded about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday February 6 2018 to a report of a hit-and-run crash in downtown Algonquin. While working on the hit-and-run case, they found a parked car abandoned in the middle of Sunrise Lane by 8:42 p.m.

A suspect believed to be the hit-and-run driver was spotted nearby, but when police tried to catch up to him, he fled north on foot toward a Walgreens about a quarter-mile away at 1301 East Algonquin Road (near Sandbloom Road).

The suspect then brandished a knife and ran east into the parking lot of Jewel-Osco at 1501 East Algonquin Road, just east of Walgreens, police said.

After trying to carjack his first vehicle, he failed to takeover the vehicle. On his second attempt to carjack another vehicle, he smashed the front passenger window of a red Dodge Neon that was being driven by an 83-year-old Algonquin woman. The suspect dove into the moving car, which resulted in the driver taking the vehicle over a curb and stopping.

The woman driving the Dodge Neon was able to open her door and escape without feeling any initial injuries.

The suspect was now driving the Dodge Neon when police officers in foot pursuit approached the vehicle. The suspect tried hitting two police officers. Neither of the police officers reported any initial injuries.

Police lost sight of the suspect and the vehicle, but the suspect apparently fled with the Neon east on Algonquin Road and north on Haegers Bend Road. Barrington Hills police arriving to assist Algonquin police officers report they found the red Dodge Neon about 9:00 p.m. crashed into a telephone pole on Haegers Bend Road east of North River Road.

The suspect, who was armed and was entrapped by the telephone pole against the driver’s door, refused to cooperate and stayed in the car until he surrendered about 50 minutes later. He was initially described as conscious and breathing in the wrecked Neon. Some of the firefighter/paramedics that were on the scene near Walgreens, Jewel-Osco and Dunkin’ Donuts — where the female driver of the Neon sought shelter — rushed over to stage near the crash scene until police secured the crash scene.

The suspect was identified as Timothy M. Andrews, 30, of an unincorporated neighborhood near Algonquin.

Andrews was transported in custody to the McHenry County jail after being evaluated and treated at a hospital nearby. He was booked about 4:26 a.m. Wednesday and held without bond. Andrews is scheduled for court Thursday morning February 8, 2018. Andrews is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, aggravated vehicular hijacking with a weapon, aggravated vehicular hijacking of a handicapped registered vehicle, and three counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer, according to authorities.

Andrews has an extensive criminal history in McHenry County and Kane County and may be wanted by another law agency while his is in custody in McHenry County jail. Recently, Andrews received time off for good behavior while serving time on a felony domestic battery conviction.
