Bond was denied Saturday for a man facing home invasion and sexual abuse charges in connection with two “peeping Tom” incidents earlier this month.

Francisco Chavez, 39, has been charged with one felony count each of home invasion causing injury, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, attempted criminal sexual assault, residential burglary and criminal trespass to a residence, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

In the statement, police said the charges stemmed from two “peeping Tom incidents” on June 14 and June 23 but did not disclose the time, location or details of either incident.

A law enforcement source said Chavez entered a home and fondled a woman about 5:10 a.m. June 23 in the 1400 block of North Wood in the Wicker Park neighborhood. He also entered a home about 2 p.m. June 14 in the 1400 block of North Cleaver in the Noble Square neighborhood.

Chavez, who lives in the Logan Square neighborhood, was arrested at 3:27 p.m. June 14 in the 1000 block of North Hermitage on a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge, according to arrest records on the Chicago Police Department’s website.

Chavez appeared in court Saturday and was denied bond, the Cook County sheriff’s office said.

Chavez, who lives in the Logan Square neighborhood, appeared in bond court Saturday, where a judge ordered him held without bond, according to the sheriff’s office. He is due in court again Monday.
