A police spokesman has confirmed for CWBChicago that a Wisconsin man turned himself in to Chicago police this week and admitted to being responsible for a February 25 home invasion in Lakeview..

Police said that around 4:30 p.m. on February 25, 44-year-old Antjuon Caver kicked in the rear door of a residence in the 900 block of West George Street. Inside, he allegedly confronted a 28-year-old woman who lives there and demanded her property. Caver collected a cell phone, laptop, and car keys before tying the woman with duct tape and cord. He then fled to the nearby Wellington Brown Line station where his escape was captured on surveillance footage, according to police.

Caver, 44, has been charged with one count of felony home invasion. He listed a home address in the 10200 block of West Fond du Lac in Milwaukee.

Asked directly about social media speculation that the victim knew the home invader, a police spokesman stated, “there is no report of there being any relation or indication the victim knew the offender.”

Police said Caver surrendered to Area North detectives at 2352 West Belmont on Wednesday. The department previously stated that the victim was 24-years-old.

Caver is expected to appear in bond court on Sunday afternoon.
