FOREST CITY | Charges against a Forest City man accused of burglarizing vehicles and breaking a man's jaw have been dismissed after his attorney provided evidence of an alibi.
Terell R. Wilson, 21, claimed he was in Las Vegas on Aug. 20, 2017, the day the alleged offenses took place, according to court documents.
The motion to dismiss filed by Winnebago County Attorney Adam Sauer states Wilson's attorney, Steven A. Kloberdanz, has provided documentation that supports the alibi.
That documentation includes a statement from the owner/operator of Naked City Pizza in Las Vegas, where Wilson said he was working that day, as well as bank statements and pictures.
Wilson had charged with felony second-degree burglary and assault in connection with the Aug. 20 incident.
A man told police he yelled at two males he saw breaking into multiple vehicles in the 100 block of Oakridge Drive in Forest City shortly before 6 a.m. that day, according to a criminal complaint.
The man told police the two males came up to him and one of them, who he identified as Wilson, hit him in the jaw.
The man's jaw was broken in two different places and he had to have it wired shut for six to eight weeks, according to the complaint.
