A 40-year-old Chicago man, who works as a motivational speaker for the anti-violence group We Stop the Killings, is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 8 after he was charged with hitting a woman in his car, police said.

Warren Jackson was charged with a misdemeanor count of domestic battery, said the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.

Tinley Park Police were called to the Burlington Coat Factory at about 8:23 p.m. Jan. 21 after another shopper reported walking out of the store and seeing a man hitting a woman inside a car parked in the fire lane in front of the store, according to a police report.

The shopper reported seeing the man remove a toddler from the car and put him back in the front passenger seat of the vehicle before turning around from the driver’s seat and punching a woman in the back seat, police said. The shopper told police she ran inside to call for help and when she exited again the car had relocated to a different part of the parking lot where the man continued to attack the woman, police said.
