A young Pekin man broke into a 36-year-old woman’s home and sexually attacked her while she slept, charges filed Friday allege.

Johnathan Tandy, 19, faces one count of home invasion, punishable by up to 30 years in prison, and two of criminal sexual abuse. He remained held Tuesday on $50,000 bond.

Police located Tandy, of 209 Herget St., last Wednesday, six weeks after he allegedly broke into the woman’s Pekin home as she slept shortly before dawn. He used a tool to open a locked garage door leading to the residence, a prosecutor’s court affidavit stated.

The woman said she awoke to find Tandy in her bed and sexually fondling her. She arose and ran to her bedroom door to find it locked. She escaped and awoke her 17-year-old son to report the invasion before running to a neighbor’s home, the affidavit stated.

Her son told police he grabbed a bat and confronted Tandy, who fled from the residence, the affidavit stated. It did not reveal whether Tandy previously knew the woman or her son. 

Tandy acknowledged he went to the woman’s home on Aug. 7 but denied touching her, the affidavit stated.

He’s next due in court on Oct. 11.
