Eliacin Stevens, 27, of 15126 Evers Avenue, Dolton, was charged with home invasion on Thursday, May 31.
Stevens, a friend of the homeowner’s ex-boyfriend, reportedly confronted the homeowner as she let her dog out in the backyard, saying, “I need to talk to you.” The homeowner quickly locked and bolted the door, called 911 and ran screaming into a bedroom.
Stevens then allegedly kicked in the back door of the home in the 18600 block of Golfview Avenue. The woman told police she threw “anything she could lay her hands on” at the intruder. He grabbed her arm and was standing over the cowering woman when police arrived, according to the report. Stevens was arrested at 2:54 p.m. and charged with home invasion.
