Charges after breaking into an elderly man’s house, assaulting a man, stealing wedding rings | Crime and Courts

MOUNT PLEASANT – A Racine man was charged in connection with an incident in January in which an 85-year-old man’s home was broken into one night and his and her wedding rings were stolen, among other things.

Jelani K. Patton, 22, of the 1600 block of Quincy Avenue, was charged with burglary while charging a person and aggravating an elderly person’s battery.

According to a criminal complaint:

On January 2, officers responded to Lakeview Drive about a break-in. The victim had an arm injury that was covered in a piece of blood that was partially soaked in blood.


Officers noticed mud on the outside of the door and footprints on the inside, as well as a side window that was broken with a latex glove underneath.

The victim said he woke up to the noise of voices and emerged from his room to see two suspects in the guest room.

He confronted her, was shoved into a closet, and then the two suspects left. He said $ 50, military buttons, ID tags and cufflinks, a silver chain, and his and her wedding rings were stolen.

On May 27, laboratory results from testing the latex glove showed that the DNA belonged to Patton.

Patton received a $ 20,000 loan in the Racine County Circuit Court on Thursday.
