How chance encounter in alley led to arrest of man accused in Loop bank robbery, shootout with guard

ABC 7 Chicago

CHICAGO -- Minutes before he robbed a Loop bank and exchanged gunfire with a guard earlier this month, the FBI says Jawad Hakeem met a woman smoking a cigarette in an alley and struck up a conversation.

He was a "sugar daddy," he told her, and was running for president in 2024, according to a federal complaint. He gave her his phone number, saying it was a "special" one given him by T-Mobile. But Hakeem was not done leaving a trail for federal agents, according to the complaint: He left behind the gun and the gloves from the robbery when he skipped on his bill at a motel in Woodlawn.

On Tuesday, Hakeem was charged with bank robbery as he sat in a jail cell in Waukegan, where he was arrested last week for a theft there.
