SYCAMORE – A Sycamore man faces felony domestic battery charges after Sycamore police said he kicked in a bedroom door and pushed two women.

Dennis C. Walker, 48, of the 500 block of Washington Place, was charged with domestic battery and aggravated assault after police responded to his residence about 10 p.m. Thursday, according to court records.

If convicted of the more serious charge of domestic battery, he faces up to three years in prison.

When the first woman came to investigate, Walker struck her in the face and neck, leaving visible marks, according to court records.
