Robert P. Whitney, 34, of McHenry.

A 34-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly broke into a McHenry home and caused serious injuries to another man before pushing a woman, court documents said.

Robert P. Whitney, 34, of McHenry, was charged with home invasion causing injury, two counts of domestic battery, criminal trespass to property, aggravated battery, battery and two counts of violating bail bond.

Court documents show that the McHenry Police Department responded on February 15 to an apartment in the 4000 block of Oak Avenue in McHenry.

A criminal complaint alleges that Whitney committed home invasion by breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s residence, where she was inside with her current boyfriend.

The woman’s current boyfriend suffered serious facial injuries, including lacerations and an eye contusion after being punched multiple times, the complaint said.

Whitney also allegedly pushed his ex-girlfriend to the ground as she was trying to help her boyfriend after he got punched in the face, the complaint said.
