The victims -- a man and a woman -- were sitting in a car on the 2400 block of Kildeer Street in Woodridge about 10 p.m. Tuesday when Johnson approached, Assistant State's Attorney Audrey Anderson said in bond court.
Anderson said Johnson shattered the driver's-side window and threatened the victims with a 9- to 10-inch knife. After taking the man's wallet, she said, Johnson ordered him out of the car and threatened to kill him, then ran off.
Police located Johnson and the knife nearby, Anderson said. She said he was an acquaintance of the female victim's ex-boyfriend.
Authorities were looking into possible armed robbery charges, Anderson said. She said Johnson has prior misdemeanor convictions for marijuana possession and disorderly conduct in Kane County.
DuPage County Judge Elizabeth Sexton set bail at $200,000, meaning Johnson will have to post $20,000 to be released from the county jail.
Johnson's address is listed in court records as the 600 block North Western Avenue in Aurora, but he told the judge he moved to Woodridge earlier this week. He said he is unemployed.
