On December 2, 2022, at approximately 10:00 a.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 600 block of Timpani Place, Volo, for an aggravated domestic battery. The victim fled to a neighbor’s home and called 911 as the offender, Thammaya Siackhasone, 39, of the 2700 block of Hartigan Road, Volo, fled from the scene in his vehicle.
While responding to the scene, an alert Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted Siackhasone fleeing and conducted a traffic stop on his car. Further investigation revealed Siackhasone arrived at the victim’s home to pick up their children in common. Both children are under the age of 10. After retrieving the children from the victim, Siackhasone told the children to wait in his vehicle.
Without authority or permission, Siackhasone then went inside the victim’s home. Siackhasone began battering and sexually assaulting the victim. One of the children was concerned it was taking Siackhasone so long to come back to the car, so the child went inside and witnessed some of the abuse. The victim was able to get free and fled from the home.
During the battery, Siackhasone told the victim he intended to kill her and the children.
After reviewing the facts and circumstances of the case, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the following charges:
- Home Invasion
- Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault
- Aggravated Domestic Battery
- Attempt Criminal Sexual Assault
- Criminal Trespass to Residence
- Interfering with the Reporting of Domestic Violence
The victim was treated at an area hospital for her injuries.
Siackhasone remains held in the Lake County Jail pending an initial court hearing this morning.
All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
