SYCAMORE – A Sycamore man registered as a violent offender against youth is being held in DeKalb County Jail on $200,000 bond for punching his girlfriend in the face.
Trenton J. Kwiatek, 23, of the 2300 block of Hawthorne Lane, has been charged with domestic battery. He has a previous conviction for beating the same woman, so if he’s convicted on this charge, he could face three to seven years in prison.
Police said in court records that they responded at 3:14 p.m. Monday to the 2300 block of Hawthorne Lane, where a woman was screaming and said later she’d crawled to the door. Officers said the screams grew louder as they approached, and that they saw a man in a white T-shirt flee as he tried to close the door.
The victim told police that Kwiatek punched her in the face multiple times after an argument. He was found in the 1700 block of DeKalb Avenue, court records show.
Kwiatek was sentenced to two years of probation in March 2017 after he attacked the same woman, at the same home, where she said at the time she lived with her grandmother and a young child.
Kwiatek posted $650 bail Nov. 21 on a charge of failing to register after police said they had to chase him in Waterman across Route 30 and through backyards in the 500 and 600 blocks of Wilson Street.
He’s due back in court at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
