Update: Man gets 7 years for Rogers Park home invasion and sexual assault

Martez Tyree | CPD

An Old Town man who allegedly threatened a woman — and then sexually assaulted her daughter during a home invasion hours later — has been sentenced to seven years. 

The incident began around 2:30 p.m. on August 29, 2018, when Martez Tyree confronted the assault victim’s mother at an Old Town business where the mother worked. According to police, Tyree allegedly told the mother that her daughter needed to be “sent away” or something bad would happen to the mother.

Five hours later, Tyree allegedly 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 him near his home in the 1400 block of North Sedgwick.

A grand jury charged Tyree with home invasion involving a sex crime, six counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, three counts of burglary, and unlawful videotaping inside a residence. 

Now 29-years-old, Tyree pleaded guilty to the home invasion charge in exchange for a 7-year prison sentence. The other counts were dropped. He has been given credit for 743 days time served before sentencing. According to Illinois Department of Corrections records, Tyree arrived at the Stateville Correctional Center on Tuesday. His parole date has not been set.

Judge Domenica Stephenson oversaw the case.
