DeKALB – Bond was set Friday at $250,000 for two Chicago men accused in a May 1 home invasion, during which police said a man was robbed of an ounce of marijuana at gunpoint.
Deontay L. Page, 20, of the 6200 block of South Vernon Avenue, and Perry A. Cleaves, 19, of the 6500 block of South Greenwood Avenue, each was charged with home invasion and obstructing justice.
DeKalb police said the two stood as lookouts outside an apartment in the 900 block of West Hillcrest Street in DeKalb while two other men went inside with guns. Police are still searching for the suspected gunmen, whom police identified as Tyrell J. Payne, 21, of the 1400 block of East 66th Place, in Chicago and Devion D. Guy, 25, of the 7100 block of South Rhodes Avenue in Chicago.
A third man, Darrell R. Rhyme, 18, of the 7000 block of South Harper Avenue in Chicago, is also charged with acting as a lookout during the robbery.
Cleaves also was charged with obstructing justice when he gave police false information after they showed him a picture of Page. Page also said he didn't recognize anyone in a photo lineup that included a picture of Rhyme, according to court records.
If either of the men are convicted of home invasion, the more serious offense, they would be sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison. If Cleaves is also found guilty of using a gun, he would be sentenced to between 21 and 45 years in prison.
Cleaves will ask a judge to reduce his bond Monday. Page is next due in court June 9.
