Suspect in Oak Park kidnapping turns himself in

OAK PARK (STMW) - A man suspected of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend Sunday in west suburban Oak Park has turned himself in to police.

Sherman Henderson, 31, turned himself in at the Oak Park police station Monday evening, according to a statement from the Village of Oak Park. He was accompanied by his attorney and taken into custody.

A witness saw a woman being forced into a vehicle in the 600 block of Forest Avenue in Oak Park about 11:50 p.m. and called 911, according to the statement.

A River Forest police officer saw the car heading westbound on Chicago Avenue, but the driver got away. The officer did get the license plate number.

Officers responded to the home on Forest Avenue and found that a back door had been forced open. Thirty-year-old Lindsay A. Bowman had been house-sitting at that address.

Bowman was later found at a suburban hospital and was being treated for minor injuries, according to police.

No charges had been filed yet as of Tuesday morning as police conduct additional interviews with Henderson and Bowman.
