Prosecutors: Aurora woman battered ‘sick and weak man’

Updated: January 27, 2014 12:17PM



An Aurora woman is facing a series of felony charges for allegedly stealing from and battering a “sick and weak man,” according to Kane County Court records.

The incident began on Dec. 15 when police were called to the 100 block of Bluff Street by a 58-year-old man who said he had gotten into a physical fight with his roommate, Peggy More. The victim said More, 51, sat on him, refusing to let him up. In court records, prosecutors describe the victim as a “sick and weak man.”

As police investigated, they learned that More had allegedly stolen a computer, a TV, a watch, a grill, a heater, and other items, worth more than $3,500, from the victim, and pawned the items off at a local pawn shop.

In addition, the victim said More used his credit cards without permission, and obtained credit cards using his personal information without his consent.

Several of the pawned items were recovered from local pawn shops, police said.

More was charged with forgery, unlawful use of a credit card, two counts of theft and unlawful restraint, all felonies. She was also charged with domestic battery and possession of drug paraphernalia after police found a crack pipe, court records show.
