A Normal man faces multiple felony counts after he was arrested Sunday allegedly trying to break into an apartment.
Bloomington police responded to the 700 block of Fairmont Dr. around 9:30 p.m. on a report of an armed subject. A man was reportedly trying to re-enter an apartment by kicking down the back door.
Police arrested Kevin Thornton, 42, who they found directly outside the apartment door for unlawful use of weapons by a felon. A handgun was found nearby.
A subsequent investigation led to additional charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault armed with a firearm and criminal sexual assault by force.
Thornton was taken to the McLean County Jail.
