Man arrested after forcing his way into Round Lake Park home, chasing victim with golf club

Richard Douglas-McDonald, 21, of Chicago.

A Chicago man is facing numerous charges after he allegedly kicked in the door to a Round Lake Park home and broke a window before chasing the resident with a golf club, police said.

Richard C.K. Douglas-McDonald, 21, of the 1200 block of West Roosevelt Road in Chicago, was charged with criminal damage to property, a misdemeanor and felony count of criminal trespass to residence, obstructing a peace officer and criminal trespass to real property.

The Round Lake Park Police Department responded at 11:30 a.m. Saturday to a 911 call of a disturbance in the 400 block of Clifton Drive.

Round Lake Park Police Chief George Filenko said that Douglas-McDonald had smashed out a window of a back door to a home with a golf club and then kicked in the door and began chasing the resident in the home while he was still armed with the golf club.

The resident was uninjured and did not get hit with the club, Filenko said. Douglas-McDonald had been arrested just hours prior at the same location and charged with battery. He had been released on a personal recognizance bond.

“It appears McDonald returned to the house and teed off on the door breaking a window and the door frame then began chasing a subject in the home with 3 iron in hand,” Filenko said.

The attack was not random and is believed to have been a drug related dispute, Filenko said.

Douglas-McDonald remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $25,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday. Additional charges are possible, police said.
