On Saturday, February 11, 2017 at approximately 3:38 A.M., the Mount Prospect Police Department responded to an apartment building in the 1400 block of South Busse Road for a reported Home Invasion. Officers interviewed a 25 year old female who stated she awoke to an unknown male, who was on top of her, punching her in the face. The offender tied up the female victim’s hands, covered her mouth, and removed her clothing. The victim was able to break free from the restraints and defend herself, punching and scratching the offender and pushing the offender off of her. The offender fled the apartment and the victim called 9-1-1 to report the attack. Responding officers searched the area and located Luis A. Del Peral-Velazco walking in the apartment complex. Del Peral-Velazco had visible injuries consistent with having been involved in a struggle.
Del Peral-Velazco was transported to the police station, where charges of Attempted Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault, Home Invasion and Aggravated Battery were later approved by the Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Office. Del Peral-Velazco was taken to a bond hearing on February 14, 2017, where his bond was set at $1,000,000.00 “D”. His next scheduled court date is set for March 3, 2017 at 1:30 P.M. in room 108 of the 3rd District Cook County Courthouse in Rolling Meadows.
