A woman has been charged in connection with a home invasion where she allegedly attacked a 69-year-old man with an axe in North Chicago.
Royshell L. Rhyan, 30, who has no known address, was charged with home invasion with a dangerous weapon and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
A criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleges the incident happened around 10 p.m. on February 23.
Rhyan unlawfully entered a home in the 1700 block of Victoria Avenue in North Chicago.
Rhyan, who was armed with a pickaxe, struck a 69-year-old man with the weapon, the complaint said. The victim was not seriously injured.
Officers with the North Chicago Police Department arrested Rhyan and transported her to the Lake County Jail.
Lake County Judge Christopher Lombardo ordered the woman held on a $150,000 bond, meaning she would need to post $15,000 cash in order to be released.
Lombardo ordered Rhyan to have no contact with the victim or his residence should she be released on bond.
Police records show Rhyan is also facing charges of battery and retail theft for a separate incident on February 20.
In that case, Rhyan is accused of committing a theft at a business in the 1900 block of South Lake Street in Mundelein and shoving an employee.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 6.
