DeKALB – A 20-year-old Chicago man accused of robbing a couple at gunpoint in November remained in a Wisconsin jail Monday waiting to face the DeKalb County charges.

Oliver P. Johnson, of the 7100 block of South Saint Lawrence Avenue, was arrested Tuesday in Beloit, Wis. on a DeKalb County warrant on charges of home invasion, armed robbery and theft over $500, said Keith Ehrke, DeKalb police detective. He will return to DeKalb County to face legal proceedings here after the proper paperwork is filed.

DeKalb police said Johnson and three other men forced their way into an apartment at about 6:50 p.m. Nov. 21 on the 1100 block of Varsity Boulevard in DeKalb and took cellphones, a computer, an Xbox system, a backpack, credit cards and other items. All of the suspects were armed, according to court records.

The other men – Torree Fair, 21, of DeKalb; Derrius Spencer, 20, of DeKalb; and Antwon Drake, 23, of DeKalb – each have pending cases. Fair is next due in court March 27, Spencer on Thursday and Drake on March 19.
