Alexis Lopez, 21, of Zion.

A woman was released on a recognizance bond after she allegedly broke into a home in Winthrop Harbor while a child was home alone early Sunday morning, prosecutors said.

Alexis Lopez, 21, of Zion, was charged with criminal trespass to residence, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Stella Day said Lopez broke into a home early Sunday morning.

The incident occurred in the 1500 block of 7th Street in Winthrop Harbor.

Day said the home was the residence of someone Lopez was previously dating.

That person was not home at the time but a child was present.

The teenage child heard someone knocking on his door in the middle of the night.

He also heard someone knocking on the windows before Lopez broke one of the windows in the kitchen, Day said.

Lopez climbed through the window and the child was “very scared” and locked himself in his bedroom, Day said.

The child called his father and the father used the security system app to ask Lopez to leave the residence.

Lopez refused and remained in the house until police arrived, Day said. Officers found her in the kitchen area.

Lopez admitted to breaking into the residence and not leaving, Day added.

Lake County Judge Christopher Lombardo allowed Lopez to be released from the Lake County Jail on a $50,000 personal recognizance bond.

Lopez was ordered to have no contact with anyone who resides at the residence where the incident occurred.

A status of preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 5.
