    A Joliet man who twice entered a couple's home Sunday to attack and threaten them has been arrested on home invasion charges, a Will County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said.


    Euron Matthews, 42, 201 Bradford, Joliet, is accused of going into a home in the 100 block of Princeton in Lockport Township at about 3:40 a.m. and attacking the 33-year-old woman and 29-year-old man who lived there, Kathy Hoffmeyer said.

    The couple had been awakened by Matthews knocking on their bedroom window, and by the
    time they'd gotten out of bed, Matthews was already in the house, Hoffmeyer said. There was
    no sign of forced entry.

    Matthews pushed the woman to the floor and "lunged" at the man, she said. As the two men
    fought, the woman called the police, prompting Matthews to flee, she said.

    About four hours later, Matthews returned with a gun, came into the house and made
    undisclosed threats, Hoffmeyer said. This time, police arrived while he was still there and after
    several requests that he give himself up, they were finally able to take him into custody, she
    said.

    Matthews was charged with home invasion, aggravated assault, felon in possession of a
    weapon, criminal trespass to property, battery and assault. He is being held in the Will County
    jail.

    According to Will County Circuit Clerk's Office records, Matthews has a lengthy criminal past,
    including arrests on charges of manufacture/delivery of 1 to 15 grams of cocaine, aggravated
    unlawful used of a weapon, criminal drug conspiracy, possession of cannabis and
    receiving/possessing/selling stolen goods.

    He has served at least one prison term but no information on his conviction was available

    He's brave. How did he know these homeowners weren't carrying concealed weapons on them?

    It's Illinois, they just passed concealed carry laws. Homeowners are probably unaware of that.
