YORKVILLE – A DeKalb man was one of two men charged with criminal trespass to a home shortly after midnight Tuesday in Yorkville.

Kendall County sheriff’s deputies assisted Yorkville police with a traffic stop a vehicle that was seen speeding, police said. The occupants fled from the traffic stop, and the car later was found in an unincorporated area, according to a statement. Yorkville police and sheriff’s deputies eventually found the two men in a house in the 14000 block of Meadow Lane. The men were not residents of the house, police said. The family was sleeping and did not know the two were inside the house.

Daeshawn Wooten, 20, of the 1200 block of Mason Lane, DeKalb, and Darrion Armstrong, 18, of the 200 block of Walnut Street, St. Charles, were both charged with criminal trespass to a residence.

The charge is punishable by one to three years in prison and fines of up to $25,000.

Wooten also was found to have three outstanding warrants from DeKalb County for aggravated assault and twice failing to appear in court.

The two are being held in the Kendall County Corrections Center pending a bond hearing.

Kendall County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Harl said police did not think the pair went into the house to take anything, but instead to elude police.
