ROCK FALLS – Authorities say they have captured the final suspect in the home invasion of a rural Rock Falls house last month.

On Monday, police in Austin, Texas, arrested Dominique A. DeJesus, 42, of Sterling, in connection with the Jan. 23 invasion of a home near Rock Falls.

DeJesus will appear in court in Texas to waive extradition and will be taken to Whiteside County, according to a news release from the Whiteside County Sheriff's Department.

Three other men have been charged in connection with the home invasion – Dalton Q. Chattic, 30, and Jordan D. Coy, 21, both of Fulton, and Jordan Woosley, 22, of Sterling, who was taken into custody in Denton, Texas.

About 2 a.m. Jan. 23, four men forced their way into the home; inside was a man and a small child, deputies say. A weapon was involved, but officials have declined to describe it.

The DeJesus warrant had been issued nationwide; his bond is set at $500,000 because of an extensive criminal history, according to the Sheriff's Department.
