A 36-year-old man was charged Friday after he attacked a man while he slept in his south suburban Ford Heights home Wednesday.

Patrick Conway, of Ford Heights, was charged with home invasion, aggravated battery and strangulation, aggravated battery to a police officer, aggravated battery to a victim who is disabled, and two counts of resisting arrest, according to a statement from the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.

Cook County Sheriff’s police officers responded to a call of a home invasion in the 1400 block of Regent Lane in Ford Heights at 1:25 a.m. March 9, according to the statement.

A 52-year-old man, who is paralyzed on one side of his body, was asleep in his bedroom and woke up to Conway on top of him attempting to choke him. Paramedics treated the man on the scene, according to the statement.

Conway attempted to leave the home when the victim’s family members intervened. As police officers attempted to arrest Conway, “he struck one of the officers in an attempt to flee,” according to the statement.

During the investigation, detectives learned that Conway attacked the man because he did not want Conway to live in the home. It was also determined that Conway entered through an unlocked window, according to the statement.

Conway was ordered held on a $250,000 bond.
