Antonia Hubanks, 29, of North Chicago.

A 29-year-old woman was arrested for home invasion after she allegedly forced her way into a home in Gurnee and attacked a woman holding a baby, injuring the victim.

Antonia Hubanks, 29, of North Chicago, was charged with home invasion, criminal trespass to residence and battery.

The Gurnee Police Department responded on August 30 to an apartment in the 6700 block of Derby Drive in Gurnee for a home invasion call.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Emma Smoler said Hubanks was tracking a cellphone belonging to the father of her child.

The phone was tracked to a woman’s residence and Hubanks went to that apartment.

The female resident answered the door and did not know who Hubanks was, Smoler said.

The victim tried closing the door but Hubanks put her foot in the doorway to prevent her from closing it.

Hubanks forced her way into the home while the victim tried blocking her, Smoler said.

A physical fight ensued and a friend of the victim tried to intervene.

The victim told police she was carrying a baby when the incident occurred, Smoler said. She suffered minor injuries, including scratches to her neck and hands.

Hubanks admitted to putting her foot in the door after being arrested by officers.

A public defender said Hubanks is a lifelong North Chicago resident and is a single parent who works as a teacher’s aide in Waukegan.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Hubanks held on a $200,000 bond.

Hubanks was out on bond at the time of the home invasion for separate cases involving resisting a peace officer, fleeing to elude and other offenses.

Hubanks remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $20,000 cash in order to be released.
