Marvin Payne – Repeat Sex Offender BUSTED

Bond was set on Saturday for a man charged with stalking for allegedly trying to lure a teenage boy to play basketball with him under the pretense that he was a coach last month on the Southwest Side.

Marvin Payne, 34, was arrested Friday, Nov. 24, at a Whole Foods Market where he works in the 7200 block of West Lake Street in River Forest and charged with stalking, according to a police report.

Cook County Judge Ramon Ocasio set bond for Payne at $10,000 Saturday. A Dec. 1 preliminary hearing has been set for 9 a.m. at West Felony Court (Br. 44), 3150 W. Flournoy, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said.

The 16-year-old male victim identified Payne, a registered sex offender, in a photo lineup after Payne allegedly attempted to lure him into his vehicle to drive him to a different location to play basketball on Oct. 29 near 2135 S. Drake Ave., according to the report.

Payne allegedly falsely identified himself as a basketball coach from Farragut Career Academy, a high school at 2345 S. Christiana Ave., according to the report.

Payne is listed in the Illinois State Police database as a registered sex offender who sexually abused a victim who was 14 when he was 21.
