Press Release- Weekend Arrest on Home Invasion Charge

2/14/2019 12:00:00 AM

The McHenry County Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of David Derita, 36, on charges of Home Invasion and Domestic Battery stemming from an incident Saturday morning in the 10 block of Hillcrest Road in Oakwood Hills.

 At about 9:20 a.m., deputies responded to Hillcrest Road to assist Oakwood Hills Police Department with a domestic battery that had just occurred.  When deputies arrived on scene, they observed that force had been used to gain entry into the house through the front door.  They located the victim and two small children inside the home. 

 An investigation was launched and it was discovered that Derita had come to the house for unknown reasons.  Once inside, he forced his way into a room where the victim was hiding while attempting to call 911.  David then allegedly battered the victim while she was holding a small child, grabbed her phone and left the residence. 

 Arrest warrants were obtained for Home Invasion; Criminal Damage to Property; Domestic Battery; and Interfering with the Reporting of a Domestic.  The McHenry County Sheriff's Office Apprehension Unit, the U.S. Marshalls Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, Kane County Sheriff's Office, and Elgin Police Department worked together to apprehend Derita, who was located and subsequently arrested today in Elgin.
