Mt. Vernon man charged with home invasion

MT. VERNON, IL — A 37-year-old Mt. Vernon man was charged Monday in Jefferson County Court with an alleged September home invasion that resulted in injuries.

According to Mt. Vernon Police Chief Trent Page, officers responded around 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, September 26, to a home in the 400 block of Cardinal Drive in Mt. Vernon on a report of a home invasion. Chief Page says Ryan Hernan allegedly went to a neighbor’s home, knocked on the door and when a female resident answered the door he began to batter her. He says Hernan then pushed his way into the home and began damaging items before exiting the front door. People who were outside the home at that time reportedly held Hernan until police arrived. He was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of a medical issue. Police then submitted their reports to the Jefferson County state’s attorney’s office who then issued a warrant for Hernan’s arrest. Hernan ultimately turned himself in to the Mt. Vernon Police Department over the weekend after learning of the warrant for his arrest.

He was formally charged Monday with Class X home invasion causing injury and two Class 4 felonies for criminal trespass to a resident while people present and resisting police.
