Ottawa man’s exploits include past robbery

Posted by wlpo on August 9, 2015

   A man who engaged Ottawa police in a chase Friday is the same person who attacked a Peru man 3 years earlier. 20-year old Jeffrey Hankerson of Ottawa was charged with felony robbery in 2012 when he and a 16 year old Peru boy attacked and robbed a Peru man.

    In his latest escapade, Hankerson drove East Norris Drive Friday night at speeds close to 80 mph. He entered the heart of downtown and flipped his car on its top at the corner of Columbus and Madison. Hankerson faces charges of retail theft, attempting to elude police, reckless driving and no valid license.
