Antonio C. Hurtado, 52, of Waukegan.

A man has been arrested after he was charged with intentionally striking two pedestrians with a car in Waukegan, requiring them to be transported to the hospital.

Antonio C. Hurtado, 52, of the 200 block of Bluff Court in Waukegan, was charged with aggravated domestic battery, three counts of aggravated battery, domestic battery and driving with a revoked license.

A criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleged that Hurtado struck a woman and a man with a vehicle on October 9, 2020, causing bodily harm to both of them.

The incident happened in the 2600 block of Glen Flora Avenue in Waukegan, according to Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Joe Florip.

Florip said the incident was “domestically charged” and both victims were transported to the hospital.

One of them suffered a broken ankle and the other sustained scrapes and bruises.

The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved charges against Hurtado four days after the incident and a judge signed a warrant for the man’s arrest.

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said sheriff’s deputies attempted to serve the warrant around 4:15 p.m. on December 30.

Deputies arrived at a residence in the 37400 block of North Delany Road in unincorporated Gurnee and spotted Hurtado outside the home.

Hurtado saw the deputies and ran into the residence, Covelli said. Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Ryker was called to the scene.

Ryker began barking at Hurtado in the entryway to the home. “He [Hurtado] exited, as he did not want to get bit,” Covelli said.

In addition to his felony charges on the warrant, Hurtado was charged with resisting a peace officer, court records show.

During a bond hearing, Lake County Judge Christopher Kennedy ordered Hurtado held on a $250,000 bond.

Court records show Hurtado’s bond was reduced to $50,000 on Thursday. He remains held in the Lake County Jail.
