Bryan J. Banbury, 28, of the 100 block of Meadows Drive, Sugar Grove, was charged last weekend with aggravated criminal sexual assault, a class X felony that could land him in jail for up to 30 years. Banbury was also charged with unlawful restraint and other related charges.

According to Sugar Grove investigator John Sizer, the police received a 911 call about an aggravated battery at 1:26 a.m. on Saturday. Sizer said that when the police arrived about five minutes later, the offender had already fled the scene.

The victim, who police said Banbury knew, was taken to Provena Mercy Medical Center in Aurora for treatment.

Banbury turned himself into the Sugar Grove police on Saturday afternoon for questioning. Police then charged him and took him into custody to Kane County Corrections.

His bond was set at $500,000. As of Tuesday, Banbury was still in custody. If he posts bail and is released, he will be fitted with a Global Positioning System (GPS) transmitter on his ankle. His court date is Thursday, May 21.
