A man from Bellwood was arrested after he allegedly broke into a home in North Chicago and abducted a child who he claims to be the father of, court documents said.
Adoniel D. Hoskins, 23, of the 500 block of 25th Avenue in Bellwood, was charged with residential burglary, a Class 1 felony, and child abduction, a Class 4 felony.
The incident occurred around 11:55 a.m. on May 19 in the 0-100 block of Prairie View Court in North Chicago, according to a criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court.
Hoskins allegedly unlawfully entered a woman’s apartment with the intent to commit a felony, the complaint said.
Hoskins allegedly took a child from the residence without the consent of the mother.
Hoskins is the putative father of the child, the complaint said. A putative father is someone who claims to be the father of a child but is not the legal father.
Officers with the North Chicago Police Department arrested Hoskins shortly after the incident.
On Thursday, Lake County Judge Paul Novak ordered Hoskins held in the Lake County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
Hoskins, who would need to post $25,000 cash in order to be released, is scheduled to appear in court again on June 9 for a preliminary hearing.
