Deon Duff, 42, of Maywood.

A man who was charged with beating and injuring a woman during a home invasion in Lake in the Hills has been arrested, according to court records.

Deon Duff, 42, of the 100 block of South 20th Avenue in Maywood, was charged with home invasion causing injury, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, aggravated fleeing police, two counts of domestic battery and two counts of criminal trespass.

Duff unlawfully entered a residence in the 1300 block of Cunat Court in Lake in the Hills on June 26, according to a grand jury indictment.

The indictment says that Duff struck his ex-girlfriend in the head and torso with his fists, knees and feet, causing bruising and swelling to the victim.

Duff then allegedly fled the scene in a black Audi, which a police officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on.

Duff refused to stop and increased speed as he fled the area, traveling 55 mph in a 25 mph zone and failing to stop at a stop sign near Oak Street and Crystal Lake Road, the indictment said.

He also allegedly blew the stop sign at Crystal Lake Road and Acorn Lane and passed cars in a no-passing zone as police pursued him, according to a criminal complaint.

An arrest warrant was issued for Duff on July 24 by a McHenry County judge. He was arrested on Monday by the Kane County Sheriff’s Office.

Duff has pleaded not guilty to all charges and remains held in the McHenry County jail on a $150,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court again on December 10.
