MORRISON – Two men are in jail Saturday and two others are wanted in connection with a Jan. 23 home invasion in rural Rock Falls, Whiteside County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. John Booker said.
Dalton Q. Chattic, 20, and Jordan D. Coy, 21, both of Fulton, each are in jail on $100,000 bond and charged with home invasion, a felony that carries 6 to 30 years in prison.
Officials still are looking for Jordan Woosley, 22, and Dominique DeJesus, 42, both of Sterling; arrest warrants charging home invasion have been issued for both.
Chattic was arrested Tuesday and Coy was arrested Friday after being questioned at the sheriff's department; both have been arraigned and each has a preliminary hearing Thursday, court records show.
Four men forced their way into the home about 2 a.m. Jan. 23; inside was a man and a small child, Booker said. A weapon was involved, but he declined to describe it. The occupants didn't appear to know the men, and no one was injured.
The DeJesus warrant has been issued nationwide; his bond has been set at $500,000 because of his extensive criminal history, Booker has said.
According to court records, in April 1991, DeJesus was sentenced in Whiteside County to 16 years for aggravated criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual assault and aggravated battery with a weapon. He was sentenced to 3 years for burglary in January 2001, and 2 years in June 2007 for failing to register his sex offender status with his employer.
DeJesus also has three felony convictions in Lee County Court, records show. He was sentenced to 3 years each for aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and harassing a witness, and 2 years for harassing by telephone, all in November 2006, court records show.
According to court records, Chattic was sentenced to 2 1/2 years for possession of cocaine in October 2010 in Whiteside County. He lived in Sterling at the time.
