Prosecutors say a man beat a woman until she lost consciousness in Antioch Friday morning and then allegedly tried to take an officer’s gun during the arrest.
Eric Bock, 26, of Antioch, was charged with domestic battery and resisting a peace officer.
Bock and the victim are in a relationship and were verbally arguing at an Antioch apartment around 1 a.m. Friday, Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Lillian Lewis said.
Bock allegedly stopped the victim from going to bed around 3 a.m. and allegedly grabbed her by the wrist.
He then hit her in the face with her own wrist that he was grabbing, Lewis said.
The victim dropped to the ground to protect herself and Bock allegedly continued to hit her, causing her to lose consciousness.
The woman regained consciousness to find Bock dragging her out of the apartment, which he indicated that he was trying to take her to the hospital, Lewis said.
The victim escaped but Bock allegedly followed the victim to her relative’s home.
Antioch police officers responded to the incident and saw a large welt on the victim’s head, Lewis said.
Officers later made contact with Bock and he tried to go back to the apartment.
A brief foot chase and then a struggle ensued with Bock, where he tried to take an officer’s gun, Lewis said.
Officers were eventually able to take Bock into custody, Lewis said.
Prosecutors said the man has a no-contact order with the victim because of a separate domestic battery case in August.
Lake County Judge Christopher Kennedy set Bock’s bond at $500,000.
Bock remains held in the Lake County Jail. A bond review is scheduled for November 28.
