Thursday, March 28, 2013A 21-year-old man has been charged with home invasion and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for an attack that included using a handheld dumbbell, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

Around 4:50 p.m. on Monday two men entered the mobile home in the 2300 block of East Oakton in unincorporated Cook County and chased a 20-year-old man into his bedroom. The offenders then punched the victim and hit him twice with the exercise equipment. They left in an unknown vehicle.

The victim, who knew the offenders, was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.
