A 23-year-old man was convicted Tuesday of forcing his way into a North Aurora residence and robbing two people. An accomplice shot and killed their dog.

He was convicted of the felonies of home invasion, armed robbery, armed violence, unlawful restraint, animal cruelty and criminal damage to property, a misdemeanor.

Police said Mullen and another man knocked on the door of a residence in the 200 block of Laurel Drive on March 1, 2013. Armed with a .40-caliber handgun, they forced their way in, according to police and Kane County court records.

Mullen and another man held a male and female at gunpoint, stole a safe, and the second man shot a pit bull three times. The dog later died of wounds to its chest, throat and leg.

North Aurora police said the attack was drug-related and not a random act of violence.

The other suspect in the case is still at large. Police said he is black, in his 20s, with dreadlocks down to his shoulders. He was wearing a black hoodie and dark pants.
