Former Postal worker convicted in rape case

Posted by Newsroom On May - 13 - 2013

A former postal worker who has been charged in five sexual assault cases has been found guilty of the 2006 rape of a Chicago teen, according to the Office of Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez.

Tommie Naylor, 45, of the 7900 block of South Yale in Chicago, was found guilty by a jury of six counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault and one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse in the May 2006 attack.

According to prosecutors, on May 10, 2006, the 16-year-old victim was waiting for a bus at 75th Street and Lafayette when Naylor pulled up in a vehicle and began blowing the horn in an attempt to get the victim’s attention.  When the victim did not respond, Naylor got out of the vehicle, threatened the victim with a screwdriver and forced her into the vehicle.  Naylor then drove a few blocks to an alley where he threatened to kill the victim and then sexually assaulted her.  After the attack, Naylor released the victim from the car.

The victim ran to a nearby house and was taken to the hospital where a sexual assault kit was completed.  In 2009, DNA from the rape kit was matched to Naylor and he was subsequently identified by the victim in a physical line-up.

Naylor was arrested July 1, 2009, at a postal sorting facility in Forest Park where he worked.  Naylor was convicted in an additional sexual assault case in May of 2011 and sentenced to 40 years.  Naylor has three more pending sexual assault cases.

Naylor’s sentencing in the 2006 sexual assault case is scheduled for June 4, 2013 at the Leighton Criminal Courts Building in Chicago, Room 602.

State’s Attorney Alvarez thanked Assistant State’s Attorneys Mary Jackovac and Megan Mulay for their work on this case.
