NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Bond has been set at $150,000 for two Naperville men accused of entering a man's home and beating him in front of his daughter.
Ricardo Jimenez-Velazquez, 36, and Luis Rojas, 30, have each been charged with one count of home invasion, causing injury.
On Tuesday, Naperville police officers responded to a call on North Sleight Street of a home invasion involving injury.
According to investigators, at about 6:30 a.m., two suspects, later identified as Jimenez-Velazquez and Rojas, allegedly entered the victim's home while the victim and his minor daughter were asleep.
Once inside, Jimenez-Velazquez and Rojas allegedly proceeded upstairs to the bedroom, where the victim was sleeping.
When the victim attempted to have the two leave his residence, Jimenez-Velazquez and Rojas punched and kicked him multiple times.
Both suspects were taken into custody later that day without incident, prosecutors said.
