• Joseph C. Figliola was arrested on charges of theft of a pair of shoes, and aggravated assault and battery with a knife last Tuesday May 28 on the 500 block of Raymond Street, according to police reports. He admitted to stealing the pair of shoes earlier that day from the victim. After the victim told him not to return to the residence on Raymond street, Figliola returned and the two got into an argument. Figliola then pulled out a double-edged folding knife and raised it above his head causing the victim to believe he was in danger. The victim tried to defend himself, and Figliola threw the knife hitting the upper bicep of the victim and leaving scratches. Another victim who needed four stitches to his finger was uncooperative. Figliola has a previous burglary charge in Kane County and a retail theft charge in Will County. He is scheduled to appear in court Friday, June 6, and bail is set at $15,000.
