McHENRY – A 46-year-old McHenry man is facing home invasion and aggravated battery charges after he allegedly broke into an ex-girlfriend’s home and fought a man inside the residence Friday night in McHenry.

McHenry police responded about 10:30 p.m. Friday to the 1700 block of Highview Drive for a report of a disturbance at a residence, according to a news release from the McHenry Police Department.

While police were on their way, they were told that James K. Kaiser, 46, of the 1000 block of North River Road, McHenry, had entered the residence and hit another man inside the home. Kaiser was outside the residence when police arrived.

An investigation showed that a woman with whom Kaiser previously had a relationship lived at the home in which he entered. There were three adults in the home when Kaiser broke into it, according to the release, including the man Kaiser struck.

Police remained at the scene to collect evidence, and Kaiser was arrested without incident.

Police said the man who Kaiser hit appeared injured, but he did not request medical attention from first responders.

Kaiser is being held at the McHenry County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bond. If convicted of the most serious charge, Kaiser could face six to 30 years in prison.

He is due in court Wednesday.
