The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said that deputies arrested a man who allegedly broke into a home in Round Lake and fought with the homeowner early Sunday morning.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office was called around 4:50 a.m. Sunday to the 35300 block of North Summit Place in Round Lake. Officials said that the homeowner called 911 after being awoken to an unknown person who walked into his home.
The suspect, identified as Ulemj Radnaa, 18, of the 24600 block of West Clinton Avenue in Round Lake, entered the home and a struggle then ensued with the homeowner. The homeowner was able to remove Radnaa from his home before sheriff’s deputies arrived.
Shortly after, police received another 911 call from a homeowner who was in the 24600 block of West Clinton Avenue in Round Lake. The caller said that a man was attempting to enter their home. Radnaa fled just before sheriff’s deputies arrived.
Deputy Forlenza and K-9 Dax were called in to help search for Radnaa. They tracked him for around a quarter-mile where they then located him and took him into custody without further incident.
Radnaa was charged with two counts of criminal trespass to property, two counts of assault, two counts of disorderly conduct, and underage consumption of alcohol.
He was transported to the Lake County Jail and released on a $1,500 recognizance bond. Radnaa is next scheduled to appear in court on November 6.
