A 25-year-old man forced his way into a St. Charles apartment Monday and threatened a person with a knife, police said.
Marquis K. Walker, of the 2100 block of South 15th Avenue, Broadview, faces six to 30 years in prison if convicted of the most serious charge of home invasion. He also is charged with felony trespass and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to court records.
Walker was being held at the Kane County jail on $75,000 bail, meaning he must post $7,500 to be released while the charges are pending.
According to St. Charles police, authorities were called Monday to the 100 block of South 17th Street. Witnesses told police that Walker pushed his way into an apartment and began threatening a resident with a knife.
Walker, who is known to the person he threatened, fled the scene and was found and arrested at another apartment complex, police said. No injuries were reported.
According to Kane County court records, Walker was arrested in 2009 on charges he possessed 2.5 grams or less of marijuana. He pleaded guilty, was fined $785 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.
Walker is due in court Dec. 11.
