An Englewood man was ordered held without bail Sunday after he allegedly beat, sexually assaulted and threatened to kill his pregnant ex-girlfriend before going on to assault the police officers who tried to arrest him.
Artez D. Jackson, 31, of the 6600 block of South Laflin Street on the South Side, faces multiple charges in connection to Saturday’s incident, including felony aggravated criminal sexual assault, aggravated battery and misdemeanor aggravated assault to a police officer, according to court records and police.
Jackson's 25-year-old ex-girlfriend is three months pregnant with his child and ended the relationship in October, but Jackson had refused to return the keys to her residence, Assistant State's Attorney Ron Park said Sunday in Cook County Bond Court.
The victim awoke at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday to use the bathroom in her residence and found Jackson in her doorway holding a handgun, Park said.
Jackson struck her multiple times in the head and body "while laughing," Park said, and then put the gun in her mouth.
"I came up here to kill you," Jackson said, according to Park. "First, I was gonna shoot you in your sleep, but since you're awake I'm gonna (expletive) you up and then shoot you in the head."
Jackson then pointed the gun at the victim's head and said he would shoot her if she did not perform oral sex on him, Park said.
The victim performed oral sex on Jackson and then he fell asleep, according to Park.
The victim locked herself in the bathroom and called 911, Park said, and police found Jackson asleep in the bedroom.
Jackson awoke and attempted to punch an officer, according to Park. He continued to be combative with police but was eventually subdued and arrested, Park said.
Officers recovered a loaded firearm by Jackson, Park said.
Jackson is on parole for a 2007 felony armed robbery and aggravated battery with a firearm conviction, according to Park.
He was also convicted of felony armed robbery in 2000 and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon in 2006, Park said.

One airline passenger’s slumber turned into something a little more alarming when he woke up and realized the plane he was traveling in was empty, dark and locked.
Tom Wagner had dozed off on the Dec. 6 flight and instead of waking him from his sweet dreams, the crew just simply overlooked him.
“I woke up and the lights were out. I was like, what’s going on? I thought maybe it was a layover, still on the same plane,” he told KTRK.
In fact, the three dozen other passengers on the flight from Louisiana to Texas also failed to see Wagner sleeping in his seat, or they simply refused to wake him up when they deplaned.
A surprised and shocked Wagner called his girlfriend to get some help.
“I called my girlfriend, and she thought I was crazy. I said, ‘Debbie I’m locked on the plane.’ I said, ‘I’m telling you the truth; you better go somewhere and get me off this plane.’”
After his girlfriend called the airline, workers came onboard around half an hour later to rescue Wagner.
“I said, ‘Don’t put the blame on me. I didn’t do anything wrong here.’ And then they were, like, try to hush-hush, keep it quiet. And they gave me this little package here in a motel room.”
The company released this statement regarding their error:
They did not, however, refund Wagner’s ticket. They did give him a $250 voucher and put him in a hotel room.
But that didn’t quell the anger and shock of being locked in the dark plane.
“What if I had a medical condition or something?” Wagner asked. “What if I had a heart attack and I was dead? You just shut…
