A 37-year-old man has been charged after police say he broke into a woman’s apartment in Wauconda and beat her, then tried sexually assaulting her.
Jacob A. Rubini, 37, of the 500 block of Kimball Avenue in Wauconda, was charged with two counts of domestic battery, home invasion, unlawful restraint and attempted criminal sexual assault.
The Wauconda Police Department was called to an apartment building in the 400 block of North Main Street on November 25 for a report of a home invasion.
Wauconda Police spokeswoman Heather Cognac said that Rubini forced his way into the victim’s apartment around 1:40 a.m. and tried sexually assaulting her. The victim was able to escape after being beaten and ran to a neighbor’s apartment for help.
Police pulled Rubini over in his vehicle a short time later while he tried to flee the area. Cognac said that the victim and Rubini had recently ended a romantic relationship.
“The Wauconda Police Department would like to stress that there is no danger to the community. However, we are requesting that anyone with additional information about any incidents involving Rubini to please contact our Investigations Unit at 847-526-2421,” police officials said.
Rubini remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $150,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court again on December 20.
