An Aurora man who wore a bandanna over only the lower half of his face while breaking into an ex-girlfriend's home was found guilty by a Kane County judge.

The ex-girlfriend of Angelo M. Parra, 24, of the 500 block of East Ashland Avenue, recognized him during the burglary, and on Tuesday Judge John A. Barsanti convicted him of two counts of home invasion, two counts of armed robbery and one count residential burglary.

In July of last year, Parra and two others kicked in the door of his former girlfriend's home on the 1300 block of South Glen Circle in Aurora about 2:30 a.m., according to a release from the Kane County state's attorney's office.

They went to her bedroom and demanded cash, taking money and her cellphone. Parra then hit her in the leg with a hammer. The two others discovered another person sleeping on the couch and took her cellphone, as well, and Parra hit that person with a hammer also.

Parra faces a sentence of between six and 30 years in prison. He next appears in court Aug. 7 for sentencing.
