Man charged with Plainfield break-in, suspected of second

(PLAINFIELD) A 23-year-old man is behind bars Wednesday, charged with breaking into a home and suspected of breaking into a second where he touched a woman while she slept in southwest suburban Plainfield.

Quincy L. Forrester, 23, was charged with criminal trespass to a residence in connection with a break-in last Friday in the 24600 block of Patriot Square Drive, according to Plainfield police.

A witness saw a man enter a garage and contacted police. The man ran away, but the witness identified Forrester in a photo lineup, police said.

Forrester was taken into custody and admitted to breaking into the garage, and also admitted entering a home March 19 and touching a woman who was asleep in her bedroom, police said.

The woman awoke to someone touching her upper body over her clothing, police said. When she screamed to alert others in the home, the man ran away.

Police said additional charges are pending against Forrester for that incident.

Forrester, of the 24400 block of John Adams Drive in Plainfield, was unable to post a $2,500 bond and is being held in the Will County Adult Detention Facility.
