Tyree | CPD

A couple of items from Old Town to report:

• An Old Town man is charged with forcing his way into a Roger Park woman’s apartment and forcing her to have sex just hours after he threatened the victim’s mother, police said.

Around 2:30 p.m. on August 29th, Martez Tyree went to a business in the 1300 block of North Sedgwick where the sexual assault victim’s mother works, police said. He told the woman that her daughter needed to be “sent away” or something bad would happen to the mother, according to police.

Five hours later, prosecutors said, Tyree forced his way into the 21-year-old daughter’s apartment in the 1600 block of West Morse Avenue. He threatened the woman, said he would not leave until they had sex, and then forced her to the ground where he sexually assaulted her, police said.

The next day, officers on patrol arrested 27-year-old Tyree near his home in the 1400 block of North Sedgwick.

He is charged with home invasion causing injury, aggravated criminal sexual assault during the commission of a felony, and assault. A judge ordered him held without bail.

Blount | CPD

• In other Old Town happenings, a 19-year-old man who lives in the 1400 block of North Sedgwick is charged with selling heroin to undercover police in the neighborhood five times since July.

Willie Blount was arrested in the 1400 block of North Hudson after he allegedly completed his fifth transaction with the cop last Saturday. Police said Blount was carrying $820 cash and 11.5 grams of crack worth $1,426 when they arrested him.

He is charged with five felony counts of delivery of heroin and felony possession of crack cocaine. Judge Michael Clancy released him on a recognizance bond.
