An Elgin man has been charged with two counts of stalking and one count of vehicular invasion.
Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon has charged 32-year-old Antonio O. Neal, Jr. with the offenses of:
- Vehicular invasion, a Class 1 felony
- Stalking, a Class 4 felony, 2 counts
Kane County prosecutors allege that the morning of Nov. 1, 2020, Neal made contact with the victim, with whom Neal once had a relationship, multiple times.
Neal banged on and kicked the door to the victim’s home, made more than 50 phone calls to the victim, and sent multiple text messages to the victim.
That evening Neal drove past the victim’s residence. A short time later the victim was sitting in her car smoking a cigarette when Neal approached the victim on the car’s passenger side and told the victim he wanted to talk.
Neal got inside the car and told the victim to drive to the back of the driveway to hide from police. After he left, he called and texted the victim multiple times.
Neal appeared Nov. 3, 2020, in Kane County bond court. The judge set Neal’s bail at $125,000, with 10% ($12,500) to apply for bond.
If Neal posts bond, he must surrender all guns and his FOID card, shall have no contact with the victim and shall stay away from the victim’s residence.
Neal’s next court appearance is set for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 17, 2020, in Courtroom 311 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
The charges against Neal are not proof of guilt. Neal is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
