The 34-year-old victim fled after being approached by a man armed with a knife about 9:25 p.m. March 15 near her vehicle on the 2S500 block of Route 59, authorities said.

Afterward, police released surveillance photos of the suspect and asked the public for help identifying him. Morrison was charged through "the assistance of local businesses and area residents," according to a news release Friday.

Warrenville Deputy Chief David Schar said Morrison posted a $1,000 bond and was released with an April 25 court date. If convicted of aggravated assault, he would face up to a year in jail.
