Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Dax tracked down a hiding suspect, who is on parole, after he allegedly attacked a woman and left her injured near Barrington Monday morning.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded around 2:30 a.m. Monday to the 28000 block of Roberts Road in unincorporated Barrington for a domestic battery.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said the victim was in a relationship with the offender, Peter Biancala, 31, of Barrington.
The female victim reported that Biancala beat her and then fled on foot, Covelli said.
Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Dax and his handler Deputy John Forlenza responded to the scene and tracked around several outhouses on the property.
Biancala was found hiding in a residence on the same property. He was taken into custody without incident.
The woman was transported to an area hospital for the injuries sustained in the attack, Covelli said.
Biancala was charged with aggravated domestic battery and four counts of enhanced domestic battery.
State records show Biancala was paroled from the Illinois Department of Corrections on November 2020.
He had been serving a four-year sentence for an aggravated domestic battery case in Kane County that he was convicted of in 2017.
Covelli said the sheriff’s office is seeking a parole violation warrant from the Illinois Department of Corrections due to his new domestic battery case.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Biancala held on a $350,000 bond.
Biancala remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $35,000 cash in order to be released.
He is scheduled to appear in court again on May 17.
