A Chicago man was accused of breaking into an Old Town home Tuesday morning after he set off the home's alarm system and fled with a diaper bag, county prosecutors said.
Raymond Hampton, 53, of the 1300 block of North Hudson Avenue, was arrested near the allegedly burglarized home on North Cleveland Avenue carrying a diaper bag he purportedly grabbed from a kitchen table counter after breaking into the home, according to the police report.
Hampton broke into the home's rear door with a knife, the police report said, setting off the home's alarm system. The 36-year-old man who lived in the home came into the kitchen, saw Hampton and shouted at him to leave.
