From the Marengo Police Department:
Officer Struck by Car During Arrest of Robert Burrow
On Thursday, November 25, 2021 at approximately 10:15 PM, the Marengo Police Department was requested to be on the lookout for a white Buick, driven by a white male with blonde hair, dressed in black.
The vehicle in question had reportedly fled the Crystal Lake Police after an incident in their city.
The vehicle registration belonged to a subject by the name of Robert Burrow.
Officers followed the route the vehicle took and located it in front of 7015 S. IL Route 23.
The driver was initially still in the driver’s seat.
Our officer again made contact with the lone subject, who had now exited the vehicle and was attempting to get to another vehicle stopped nearby.
The subject was taken into custody and during the arrest, began pulling away from the officers and used our squad car to push his feet against in order to defeat the arrest.
The subject was identified as Robert A. Burrow, 20, of 3602 River Rd, Sterling, IL.
Mr. Burrow was charged by the Marengo Police Department, with the following offenses:
- Aggravated Battery to Peach Officer (Class 2 Felony)
- Aggravated Battery with Deadly Weapon (Class 3 Felony)
- Resisting a Peace Officer (3 counts – Class A Misdemeanor)
- Fleeing or Attempting to Elude (Class A Misdemeanor)
Mr. Burrow was transported to McHenry County Jail. His bail was set at $75,000 (10% to apply) for both the Marengo and Crystal Lake incidents.
The Marengo police department wishes to remind the public that a charge is merely an accusation and all those charged are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
