Brandon M. Brown

A Cary man faces felony charges alleging that he struck a man and woman multiple times with a skateboard Tuesday in Crystal Lake, sending both to the hospital, according to police and court records.

Brandon M. Brown, 28, was arrested Thursday morning in the 2000 block of Hillside Terrace outside Cary, the Crystal Lake Police Department said in a news release.

He was charged with two counts of aggravated domestic battery resulting in great bodily harm, two counts of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, two counts of aggravated battery using a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor count of obstructing identification, according to the criminal complaint.

The most serious charges – aggravated domestic battery – are Class 2 felonies, which can carry sentences of three to seven years in prison but also are probational.

Crystal Lake police responded at 11:18 p.m. Tuesday to the 300 block of Teckler Boulevard for two people who had been battered by a person they knew, police said in the release.

Both people – a man and a woman – were struck “numerous times” with a skateboard on the face and head, according to the complaint.

The man suffered “significant blood loss and a number of serious injuries,” including facial bone fractures that required surgery and facial lacerations that required stitches and staples, according to the complaint.

The woman also experienced blood loss and “numerous injuries,” including bruising and facial lacerations that required staples, according to the complaint.

Both were taken to area hospitals and later released, according to the release.

Brown subsequently was arrested about 8:30 a.m. Thursday without incident, according to the release.

The police said Brown does not have a current address, but court records list Hillside Terrace as his address.

The investigation remains ongoing. The Crystal Lake Police Department asks anyone with information about the case to call 815-356-3620 or send anonymous tips by texting “CLPDTIP” along with the tip information to 847411. Normal text messaging rates apply.
