Police: Peoria man faces home invasion, child sex charge in Macon County

DECATUR — Police say a 23-year-old Peoria man is facing charges after breaking into a Decatur home in August and sexually assaulting a girl under 10 years old.

Sgt. David Pruitt said Jarquez A. Hobbs was arrested on a warrant in Peoria on Tuesday by U.S. Marshals and the Peoria Police Department. The warrant stems from an incident which occurred in the early-morning hours of Aug. 5, he said.

Due to the victim's age, few details are being made public, Pruitt said.

Hobbs is facing two preliminary Class X felony charges of home invasion and predatory criminal sexual assault. He was transported to the Macon County Jail and booked in around 9 p.m. Tuesday. He is being held on $3 million. All preliminary charges are subject to review by the Macon County State's Attorney's Office.
