A 26-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly punched a wheelchair-bound family member in the face, leaving them with a visible injury in Harvard, court records show.
Abraham Hernandez, 26, of Harvard, was charged with aggravated battery to a pregnant or handicapped person, domestic battery causing bodily harm and domestic battery physical contact.
The Harvard Police Department arrested Hernandez around 7:50 p.m. on May 26.
Harvard Police Chief Tyson Bauman said Hernandez struck a physically disabled family member in the face, leaving them injured.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Hernandez struck the victim in the face with a closed fist.
A bump was visible on the victim’s forehead, the complaint said.
The charges were enhanced to a felony because the male victim is physically handicapped and wheelchair-bound, the complaint said.
Hernandez was out on bond at the time of his arrest in connection with a May 6 incident in Harvard where he was charged with assault.
Hernandez allegedly threatened to go to another man’s residence and beat him up, court records show.
Hernandez was transported to the McHenry County Jail following his latest arrest.
McHenry County Judge Mark Facchini ordered Hernandez held on a $20,000 bond.
Hernandez was released from the jail after posting 10% of his bond.
He is scheduled to appear in court again on June 23 for a preliminary hearing.
