Man charged with threatening to kill staff, exposing himself at Bolingbrook business

A man was charged with threatening to kill staff members at his former job in Bolingbrook and exposing himself to a female guard while making derogatory statements.

About 1:15 p.m. Thursday, Jordan Williams, 28, of the 17400 block of East Gate Drive, Country Club Hills, was booked into the Will County jail on charges of public indecency, obstructing a police officer, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred about 11:30 a.m. Oct. 27, when officers responded to Personalization Mall, 850 Veterans Parkway, for a terminated employee refusing to leave and acting aggressively toward staff, Bolingbrook police said.

Williams was threatening to kill staff at the business, police said, and then pulled down his pants and exposed himself to a female security guard while making derogatory statements.

When officers arrived, Williams was pacing back and froth in front of the building and screaming at security guards, police said.

As officers attempted to calm Williams, he grabbed the door handles of the business and violently pulled on them to gain entry, which caused damaged to the doors, police said.

Williams then entered a second set of doors at the location and attempted to attack employees, police said.

An officer deployed a Taser on Williams, who was then taken into custody, police said.
