A Round Lake Beach male resident has been charged with aggravated domestic battery and striking a police dog, stemming from an early Saturday morning incident.

At approximately 5:50 a.m., on October 7, 2023, Round Lake Beach Police requested the assistance of a Lake County Sheriff’s Office Canine Team to search for a man wanted in an aggravated domestic battery. Earlier in the morning, Sanjuan Reyes, 36, of the 900 block of Bugle Court, Round Lake Beach, drove to a relative’s home in Joliet. Reyes was covered in blood and intoxicated. He left the Joliet home shortly after arriving and his family became concerned, he may have killed a different family member he lives with, in Round Lake Beach. The family called Joliet Police Department who then notified Round Lake Beach Police Department.

Round Lake Beach Police responded to Reyes’ residence, but did not locate anyone. They developed information Reyes might have been in the area of Route 83 and Rollins Road, Round Lake Beach. When they arrived, they located Reyes’ vehicle in a parking lot, which had a significant amount of blood inside of it. It was then learned that Reyes battered the family member he lives with, at a location in Waukegan, before driving to Joliet. The victim, a 39-year-old woman, sustained several injuries in the battery, including broken bones. She was admitted to an area hospital.

Lake County Sheriff’s K9 Dax responded to the scene and conducted a track. K9 Dax tracked approximately a half-mile, and located Reyes hiding in a thick bush line in the area of Route 83 and Rollins Road. Reyes refused to surrender and K9 Dax bit him. Reyes struck K9 Dax during the apprehension, however, K9 Dax was uninjured.

Reyes was arrested and after reviewing the facts and circumstances of the case, subsequently charged with:

Aggravated Domestic Battery (Class 2 Felony)

Aggravated Battery (Class 3 Felony)

Two counts of Domestic Battery (Class 4 Felonies)

Reyes is also being charged with:

Resisting Arrest (Class A Misdemeanor)

As per protocol, K9 Dax was evaluated by his veterinarian.

Reyes appeared in First Appearance Court today where a Lake County Judge ordered him held for a Detention Hearing.
