A man with five prior felony convictions and two pending felony cases in Wisconsin was arrested for allegedly robbing a man on a Chicago train early Tuesday morning.

Prosecutor Tilesha Jackson said a 40-year-old man was riding a Red Line train when suspect Dontrell Hollie, 29, commented on the man’s bag before forcibly taking it from him, according to CWBChicago.

The victim then contacted a train operator over an intercom while Hollie moved to a different car. Police arrived at the North-Clybourn station, where the victim identified Hollie in a “huge crowd,” Jackson said.

Law enforcement officials then searched Hollie and recovered the other man’s wallet from his pants pocket, the prosecutor said.

Jackson told CWBChicago that his convictions include attempted burglary and felony retail theft in 2018, a 2016 robbery conviction, criminal damage to government property in 2016, residential burglary in 2011, and several misdemeanors. She noted that he also has open cases in Wisconsin for hit-and-run, bail jumping, and attempted robbery.
