Bond lowered in DeKalb home invasion cases

DeKALB – A judge reduced bond Wednesday for two of three men allegedly involved in a Dec. 2 home invasion in which a man was attacked with a knife.

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 in DeKalb; were charged with two counts of home invasion, two counts of mob action and two counts of misdemeanor battery.

DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert halved the bond for Hung Nguyen and Tu Nguyen to $50,000. If the post the required $5,000, they also will be subject to electronic home monitoring. Those are the same conditions Stuckert placed on Duong last week.

The trio allegedly started a fight about 11:20 p.m. Dec. 2 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, police said. Everyone involved with the altercation knew each other, police 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.

Home invasion typically is punishable with between six and 30 years in prison. Hung Nguyen and Tu Nguyen's next court date is Jan. 27. Duong's next court date is Jan. 15.
