A Markham man faces several felony charges after he allegedly took a woman hostage Friday at a spa on Chicago’s South Side and sexually assaulted her.
Byron K. Moore, 49, faces three counts of attempted robbery, three felony counts of unlawful restraint, a felony count of sexual abuse, a count of attempted criminal sexual assault and a felony count of aggravated kidnapping, according to a statement issued Saturday night from police News Affairs.
Moore, of the 16200 block of South Laflin Street in Markham, allegedly walked into a spa in the 3100 block of South Archer Avenue about 6:45 p.m. Friday and tried robbing three women, police said.
