A woman locked herself and her five young children into a bedroom Wednesday while a Waukegan man allegedly broke into her Beach Park home.

Jose Herrera, Jr., 23, allegedly broke down a door and repeatedly yelled “Where is she at?” inside the north suburban home, the Lake County sheriff’s office said in a statement.

The woman and her children waited inside a locked room at 9:40 a.m. while police responded to her home in the 12700 block of West 28th Street, the sheriff’s office said.

Officers arrested Herrera, who didn’t know anyone in the home, and took him to a hospital for injuries to his arms and legs, the sheriff’s office said.

Later that day, he was then taken to Lake County Jail on charges of criminal trespass, damage to property, assault and disorderly conduct.

Herrera was expected to appear in court Thursday morning.
