Two rollovers on road: Paramedics from the Hampshire Fire Protection District responded to two rollover traffic crashes Thursday morning west of Hampshire, but no one was seriously injured in either, officials said. Deputy Fire Chief Trevor Herrmann said a vehicle rolled over at Route 72 and New Lebanon Road at 7:23 a.m. Paramedics treated one person at the scene but did not take the person to a hospital, he said. Just three hours later, two vehicles collided at Melms and New Lebanon roads, one of which rolled over and caught fire, Herrmann said. Four people were treated at the scene, he said, but again none had to be taken to a hospital.
Woman beaten with wrench: Fernando Enriquez, 21, of the 300 block of DuPage Street, Elgin, was charged with a Class 2 felony count of aggravated domestic battery following an incident early Thursday in Elgin. Police said Enriquez is accused of pushing a woman into a wall, punching her face and head and beating her with a wrench, causing lacerations to her head that required three staples to repair. Bail was set at $30,000, and he was given a June 22 court date.
Even the mattress: A burglar smashed open the front door of a home in the 1800 block of Mission Hills Drive and stole $100 cash plus about 35 pieces of jewelry, valued at several thousands of dollars. The resident said the burglar struck between 7:45 a.m. and 2:20 p.m. Wednesday. Police reported that the intruder ransacked dresser drawers and a cedar chest, and even took the mattress off the master bedroom’s bed to see if anything was hidden underneath.
A cold mystery: Investigators were puzzled about how someone got into a locked house in the 300 block of Raymond Street between 5 p.m. Tuesday and 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, and stole a refrigerator without leaving any sign of forced entry.
Boat hits pier: A McHenry youth suffered a head injury when a boat he was driving crashed into a pier along the Fox River in Fox River Grove on Wednesday evening, authorities said. McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren said marine deputies were called by someone who saw the crash, which occurred at about 6:10 p.m. at 300 River Road. He said they found the damaged boat again on the move, with its driver bleeding from the head. Nygren said the driver claimed to have no memory of the crash but did not appear to be drinking or using drugs. Paramedics took him to Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington and deputies charged him with careless operation of a watercraft.
