Chicago man arrested at court after domestic battery charges upgraded

SYCAMORE – Police arrested a Chicago man in court Thursday after they said he choked a woman in July.

Marquis V. Lidell, 21, of the
2700 block of W. Congress Parkway, originally was charged with domestic battery July 28 after DeKalb police responded to a 911 hang-up call at 3:33 p.m. in the 600 block of North Annie Glidden Road.

Dispatchers heard a woman calling for help before the call abruptly ended, according to court records. According to court documents, the victim told police Lidell had pushed her on the bed, held her hands and twisted them.

Police later reported they saw scratches on her collarbone and stomach, according to court records.

At the time, the victim said
the argument stemmed from one
earlier in the day that police
also had been called to, according to court records.

In the first incident, at 2:04 a.m. July 28 at the same location, the
victim told police that Lidell had
followed her into the bathroom, locked the door behind them, wrapped his arms around her neck and squeezed, cutting off her ability to breathe, according to court records.

On Sept. 9, Lidell was charged with aggravated domestic battery after the reported incident, according to court records.

DeKalb County Public Defender Tom McCulloch said in court Friday that Lidell had shown up to every court date and subsequently was arrested by court security when he arrived for a court appearance Thursday.

Judge Ronald Matekaitis ordered Lidell released on his signature, acknowledging that Lidell had appeared in court as required.

Lidell is next due in court at
1:30 p.m. Nov. 21.
