SYCAMORE - A Kingston woman is facing charges after police allege she broke into her neighbor’s home and attacked him, although she told police he allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Rose M. Olson, 44, of the 100 block of Main Street in Kingston is charged with criminal trespass to residence (a Class 4 felony), criminal damage to property and battery. If convicted of the most serious crime, criminal trespass to residence, she could face up to four years in jail and fines up to $25,000.
Olson appeared before DeKalb County Circuit Court Judge Marcy Buick for a bond hearing on her charges Tuesday virtually from the DeKalb County Jail.
According to DeKalb County court records, the incident occurred about 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, June 1.
DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies were called to an apartment on Main Street for reports of disorderly conduct, and upon arrival saw a woman, later identified as Olson, who told them that her neighbor, a 24-year-old Genoa man, had sexually assaulted her some time ago and she was angry with him, reports state.
As of June 2, DeKalb County court records do not show any charges for the man related to sexual assault or any incident this year.
Sheriff’s deputies reported that Olson told them she kicked in the man’s door to his apartment and the two began a physical altercation, during which she allegedly knocked over his television and broke the screen.
Deputies reported Olson also caused substantial damage to the door of the man’s apartment, and allegedly seemed “very intoxicated,” reports state.
Olson was released on a recognizance bond and is next set to appear for a status hearing July 23 at 10 a.m.
