Boystown Home Invasion Reported Sunday Morning; Charges Filed

Joseph Grant (inset) was arrested after a reported home invasion in the 800 block of W. Buckingham.
He lives on the Far Southwest Side, but Joseph Grant sure does cause a lot of trouble in our neck of the woods.

In 2015, Grant received 30-months probation for robbing a 25-year-old man in Wrigleyville.

In July, while still on probation, Grant was slapped with an extensive list of narcotics charges after cops stopped him for allegedly urinating in a Boystown alley.

Now, Grant is facing felony burglary charges after cops responded to a home invasion in Boystown on Sunday morning.

Police say a man woke up in the 800 block of West Buckingham around 8:15 this morning and found Grant standing over the top of him. Grant ran out the back door with property he had gathered from the apartment—an iPhone, a MacBook, and the man’s wallet, police said.

Officers soon found Grant hiding in the apartment building’s basement with the victim’s stolen property, according to police.

Grant, 25, was positively identified on-scene by the victim and was charged this afternoon with felony burglary. He’s due in bond court on Monday afternoon.
