Mount Prospect Police Arrest One Of Cook County Sheriff’s Top 40 Most Wanted
On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, the Mount Prospect Police Department located and arrested Edham Salkic, 24, of 60 South Shaddle Avenue #302, Mundelein, Illinois. An arrest warrant had been issued for Salkic after he failed to appear in court, while out on bond, stemming from an attempted murder charge in Mount Prospect on January 6, 2015. Salkic had been eluding capture and been placed on the Cook County Sheriff’s Top 40 Most Wanted List prior to this arrest.
“The dedication by our investigators to locate and take a violent offender into custody exemplifies the commitment of our Department to keep the community safe,” commented Deputy Police Chief Michael Eterno.
Salkic remains in custody at the Cook County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court on February 28, 2017 at 9:30 A.M. in room 110 of the 3rd District Cook County Courthouse in Rolling Meadows.
Salkic was initially arrested and charged in January of 2015, by the Mount Prospect Police Department, with two counts of attempted murder, one count of attempted armed robbery, one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm and one count of unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver. In January of 2015, Salkic and a 17 year-old juvenile approached a vehicle parked behind a business in the 400 block of East Euclid Avenue, while wearing masks, and had attempted to rob the occupants of the vehicle at gunpoint. Salkic and the juvenile began firing their handguns at the vehicle as it drove away, striking it several times. The two victims inside the vehicle were not been struck by any bullets or injured.
