Federal Authorities Charge 4 Chicagoans In Relation To Armed Robbery, Carjacking Spree

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — A federal grand jury has indicted four Chicago men in connection to a series of robberies last fall, including carjacking, gun, and other charges.

Damandre Henley, 25, Dwight Hasberry, 29, Tyler Oates-Nelson, 27, and Devario McDowell, 21, are accused of carjacking a 21-year-old man in September and subsequently robbing a 7-Eleven store, according to CWB Chicago.

At least two of the suspects were previously charged in state court and one recently served prison time for similar crimes.

The group allegedly hijacked the victim’s black Volkswagen Tiguan at gunpoint, and later used the vehicle to commit further crimes.

At the 7-Eleven, 2900 West Montrose, Henley and Hasberry reportedly threatened the store’s clerk with firearms while another suspect stole liquor and cigarettes.

The clerk, who had limited English proficiency, was later pistol-whipped by Henley.

Chicago police apprehended Henley and Hasberry approximately 20 minutes after the 7-Eleven robbery, finding the carjacked Volkswagen on the West Side.

Federal records indicate that the FBI suspects the four men were involved in two additional street robberies and six carjackings that same day.

In 2018, Oates was charged with robbing two 7-Eleven stores and received concurrent six-year sentences after pleading guilty in 2019. He is still on parole for those convictions.
