A Lake Villa man is facing multiple felony charges for allegedly robbing a man in Round Lake and hitting the victim in the head with a bludgeon.
Keenan R.M. Queen, 22, of the 22300 block of Morton Drive in Lake Villa, was indicted by a grand jury last week on charges of armed robbery, a Class X felony, aggravated robbery, a Class 1 felony, and two counts of aggravated battery, a Class 2 felony.
A grand jury indictment filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleges Queen robbed a man on August 21 near South Bernice Court and Petite Road in Round Lake.
Queen, who was armed with a firearm, took a phone, cash, and prescription glasses from the 19-year-old man during the robbery, the indictment said.
Queen also struck the victim in the head with a bludgeon, causing bodily harm, the indictment said.
The victim was treated by paramedics with the Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District.
The most serious charge against Queen, armed robbery, is a Class X felony that carries a sentence of 6-30 years in prison.
Queen has been held in the McHenry County Jail on a $250,000 bond since September 23 after being arrested by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.
Queen’s September arrest stemmed from him being charged with drug-induced homicide for allegedly selling fentanyl-laced pills to a Cary man, causing his death.
Court records show Queen’s McHenry County case remains active. He is scheduled to appear in court for a status hearing on a trial date on April 27.
An arraignment hearing in Lake County court is scheduled to take place on April 29.
