Third arrested in DeKalb home invasion
SYCAMORE – A third person has been arrested in connection with the home invasion early Thursday in the 900 block of Luncinda
Myles E. Stowers, 18, of the 1300 block of Indian Creek Trail in Aurora, was charged Friday with two counts of home invasion, armed robbery and attempted aggravated criminal sexual assault. The most serious charges he faces are Class X felonies, which typically are punishable with between 6 and 30 years in prison.
Kyndal S. Pringles, 18, of Aurora and Eric J. Lecoure, 18, of Forest Park were arrested Thursday on charges of home invasion and armed robbery in connection with the same incident. DeKalb police said they are investigating a fourth person.
According to court documents, Pringles and Lecoure knocked on the door of an apartment on the 900 block of Lucinda Avenue just after midnight Wednesday. When the male victim unlocked the door, the men pushed through with a knife and pressed it against the victim’s throat, threatening to kill him, according to documents.
Stowers, who was armed, ordered the female victim to disrobe and threatened sexual assault. DeKalb Police Cmdr. John Petragallo said neither victim was injured and the female victim was not touched. The victims told police they knew the suspects.
After threatening the victims, the suspects then stole between $50 to $60 and marijuana and fled the apartment.
According to court documents, Pringles and Lecoure were found in Aurora, where they said they were involved in the robbery. Lecoure said he was present when the plan was discussed and admitted to being part of the getaway plan. Pringles said he set up the plan and took part in the robbery, according to court documents.
Pringles and Lecoure are students at Waubonsee Community College and have no criminal history, court records show. Both men were held on $100,000 bail, but Lecoure’s family posted the necessary $10,000 Friday and he was released.
Stowers was in the process of being booked late Friday.
