DeKalb brothers charged in home invasion

SYCAMORE – Two DeKalb teenage brothers were charged with home invasion Wednesday after police said they threatened to shoot neighbors in their apartment complex.

Adale Cross, 19, and DaShawn Cross, 18, both of the 800 block of Greenbrier Road in DeKalb, were being held Thursday on $100,000 bond. They were both charged with home invasion and battery; the more serious charge is typically punishable with between six and 30 years in prison.

According to court documents, the Crosses approached the apartment a little after 5 p.m. Wednesday, threatening to shoot the two men who lived there if they got inside. The Crosses pried the door open and then punched the victims repeatedly before fleeing, court documents show.

Police reports stated the two alleged victims told officers the Crosses were responsible. They were treated for contusions and lacerations at Kishwaukee Community Hospital.
