Franklin T. Dorneden, 36, of the 300 block of West Exchange Street, Sycamore, is charged with aggravated domestic battery and domestic battery.

He was arrested Saturday by DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies on a warrant issued in

Sycamore Police Cmdr Steve Cook said Monday that Dorneden is accused of attacking a 36-year-old Sycamore woman and a 17-year-old Sycamore boy.

Police said in court records that Dorneden hit the 17-year-old in the face and put him in a chokehold, restricting his airway. Dorneden also grabbed the 36-year-old woman by the throat, according to court records.

Cook said police reports show alcohol was a factor in the February incident.

his bond. He is due back in court at 1:30 p.m. June 20.
