A Fox Lake man is facing numerous charges after police say he committed a home invasion near Lake Villa where he punched a woman and bit a man Friday evening.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said deputies responded around 10:45 p.m. Friday to the 36600 block of North Mary Drive in unincorporated Lake Villa for a home invasion call.
The 911 caller reported that Nicholas J. Coles, 33, of the 0-100 block of Lippincott Road in Fox Lake, had kicked her front door open.
Covelli said that Coles attacked a 35-year-old woman, who resides at the house.
The woman was punched several times and sustained several broken teeth and bruises in the attack.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Brooke Wanzenberg said during a bond hearing that the victim used to be in a dating relationship with Coles.
A 43-year-old Lake Villa man was also inside the home at the time and was able to push Coles off the victim.
Coles struck and bit the man before fleeing the scene, Covelli said.
A regional broadcast to area law enforcement was issued following the incident.
Several hours later, an alert sheriff’s deputy on patrol located Coles’ vehicle in unincorporated Spring Grove, Covelli said.
Coles was located inside a residence in the 28200 block of West Stewart Avenue in unincorporated Spring Grove.
He was also found to be in possession of methamphetamine.
Coles was arrested and charged with home invasion, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, domestic battery and battery.
Lake County Judge Veronica O’Malley ordered Coles held on a $200,000 bond. He would need to post $20,000 cash in order to be released.
He is scheduled to appear in court again on August 3.
