OAK BROOK, IL – A bond has been set for a man accused of attempting to break into an Oak Brook home on Thanksgiving night.
According to Oak Brook police, Sean Anderson, 24, of Westchester, was charged with one count of armed violence, attempted home invasion, attempted residential burglary, and unlawful possession of a weapon.
According to the DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin, Anderson appeared in bond court on Saturday morning, where Judge Susan Alvarado set a bond of $750,000 with a 10% surcharge.
According to police, officers responded to a home on Glenoble Court shortly before 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving after receiving a call that a man was attempting to break in. When officers arrived, they identified Anderson as the suspect after learning that he had fled to Roosevelt Road through the backyard. Two on-duty officers saw Anderson and began chasing him on foot and arrested Anderson on Roosevelt Road and the I-294 ramp. Officers allegedly saw a loaded gun under Anderson as they rolled him over from his stomach to his back.
According to police, a woman in the house heard a knock at the back door and mistook it for her husband. The woman opened the door to discover Anderson had already opened the screen door, claiming to be from an energy company and demanding to be allowed inside.
The woman slammed the door shut and called her husband. When the husband arrived, Anderson, armed with a gun, demanded to be let in, claiming to be from an energy company. Anderson fled when her husband refused.
Anderson is currently on parole for a carjacking in Cook County in 2018.
Anderson is expected in court December 20 in front of Judge Ann Celine O’Hallaren Walsh for arraignment. If convicted, Anderson faces a jail term of 15 to 30 years.
