Police: LITH man assaulted roommate

LAKE IN THE HILLS – A Lake in the Hills man is accused of sexually assaulting his roommate after she didn’t make him breakfast.

James E. Price, 54, of the 200 block of Hawthorne Road, is charged with criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, aggravated domestic battery, interfering with the reporting of domestic violence and aggravated assault.

The alleged attack on Price’s 61-year-old roommate occurred about 8 a.m. Saturday.

“He demanded her to make breakfast,” said Sgt. Mark Smith of the Lake in the Hills Police Department. “She had to do something before she made him breakfast, and he got angry.”

Price is accused of hitting the woman and throwing her to the ground, as well as sexually assaulting her.

Price remained in the McHenry County Jail on Monday. He will need to post $10,000 to be released.
