A man who allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and choked her in northwest suburban Mount Prospect was charged Tuesday with several felonies.
About 2:45 p.m. Monday, police were called about a robbery at a house in the 300 block of North Main Street, according to a statement from Mount Prospect police. While en route to the home, officers learned a suspect had left the area in a black Lincoln sedan.
Police were told 19-year-old Javier Noveron, of the first block of Whipple Tree Road in Wheeling, had broken into the home of his ex-girlfiend, and confronted her and a male in the basement, police said. Noveron took his ex-girlfriend’s phone when she tried to call police and later threatened the male with a knife in her kitchen.
The male was able to leave the residence uninjured, but Noveron continued to follow his ex and grabbed her around the neck to choke her for several seconds. She suffered minor injuries, police said.
Noveron left the house and got into the car before he was taken into custody near Main Street and Route 14, police said. He was charged with two counts of home invasion, aggravated domestic battery and robbery.
Bond was set at $500,000 Wednesday in Rolling Meadows, police said. He is scheduled to appear in court next Sept. 29.
