Three men charged with DeKalb home invasion

DeKALB – Three men remained in DeKalb County Jail on Tuesday unable to post $100,000 bond after they allegedly attacked two men inside their DeKalb home with a knife.

Charged were Hung Nguyen, 41, of the 4000 block of N. Sheridan Road, Chicago; Tu Nguyen, 32, of the 2000 block of Ridge Ave., Chicago; and Mckem Duong, 40, of the 2000 block of Alpha Court West, DeKalb. All three men face two counts of home invasion, two counts of mob action and two counts of misdemeanor battery.

Home invasion typically is punishable with between six and 30 years in prison; probation is not an option.

DeKalb police went to the area near Duong's home after someone reported seeing three people with blood on their clothing, DeKalb Police Lt. Bob Redel said.

Police later learned the trio started the fight about 11:20 p.m. Monday at a home in the 2400 block of Williams Way in DeKalb as part of dispute over money that has lasted a month or more, Redel said. Everyone involved with the altercation knew each other, Redel said.

One victim suffered injuries to his face and the other suffered an eye injury during the fight, court records show. Neither of the victims sought medical attention, DeKalb police said in a news release.

On Tuesday, DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert appointed a public defender to represent the defendants. Their next court date is scheduled for Dec. 18.
