Two people were charged in a home invasion Thursday morning in the Norwood Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

A resident in the 6800 block of West Hobart Avenue called 911 about 10:35 a.m. to report someone breaking into their home, according to Chicago Police.

Officers responded and took two males into custody after a short foot chase, police said. No injuries were reported.

Michael Alarcon, 29, and Marcos Alarcon, 25, were each charged with one felony count of residential burglary, police said.

The older man was released on electronic monitoring, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. Marcos Alarcon remained jailed on a $90,000 bond early Saturday.

They are due in court again June 22.
