An Aurora man was convicted late Tuesday of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and hitting her with a hammer while robbing her last summer.
Angelo M. Parra, 24, of Aurora was convicted of two counts each of home invasion and armed robbery, and one count of residential burglary in a bench trial before Judge John Barsanti, according to the Kane County State’s attorney’s office.
About 2:30 a.m. July 12, 2013, Parra and two other people kicked in the door of his ex-girlfriend’s home in the 1300 block of South Glen Circle in Aurora, a statement from prosecutors said.
They went to her bedroom and demanded cash. After they took the money and her cell phone, Parra took a hammer from a drawer and hit her in the leg, prosecutors said.
The suspects found a second person asleep on a sofa in a different room, and also took her cell phone before hitting her in the leg with the hammer, prosecutors said.
The woman recognized Parra even though he was wearing a bandana over the lower part of his face, prosecutors said. The accomplices used T-shirts as masks.
Parra will appear in court Aug. 7 for motions and sentencing
