Police say a man and a woman robbed an elderly man at knifepoint during a home invasion in Woodstock after the victim arranged to meet up with the woman.

Calvin D. Jackson, 28, of Rockford, was charged with home invasion, armed robbery, residential burglary, aggravated identity theft and aggravated assault.

A second suspect, Carley K. West, 28, of Rockford, was charged with armed robbery, residential burglary and aggravated identity theft.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Jackson committed a home invasion around 4:50 p.m. on August 26 at a residence in the 2600 block of Verdi Street in Woodstock.

Jackson knowingly entered the residence while armed with a weapon while knowing the resident was inside, the complaint said.

The complaint said Jackson threatened the imminent use of force upon the male resident, who is over 70 years old.

Jackson and West robbed the victim of an Apple iPhone while armed with a knife, the complaint said.

The complaint said Jackson and West also obtained personal identifying information or a personal identification document belonging to the victim.

Court documents said Jackson entered the home uninvited and held the victim by threat of deadly force until the victim was able to escape.

Court documents also said Jackson has a prior history of violent offenses and failures to appear in court.

The two suspects were arrested earlier this month in the 3900 block of Eagle Drive in Rockford.

Prosecutors filed petitions to detain both Jackson and West pending trial, calling them real and present threats to the community.

McHenry County Judge Jeffrey Altman granted one of the petitions and ordered Jackson held in the McHenry County Jail.

Altman denied the second petition to detain West after finding she could be released with pre-trial conditions including home confinement with a GPS monitor.

Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb said the victim was seeking companionship and arranged a meeting online to meet with West, whom he did not know.

Lieb said West was inside the home with the victim when a ruse occurred.

West asked the victim if Jackson, who had already secretly entered the residence, could use the bathroom, Lieb said. A struggle then ensued.

The police chief said it is unclear how Jackson and West are connected.

Detectives narrowed in on the two suspects early on in the investigation but conducted a thorough investigation before making the arrests, Lieb said.

Lieb said the two are only suspected of committing one home invasion in Woodstock but it is unknown if they are linked to any others outside of the area.
