NFDL Home Invasion Suspect Charged
Bond was set at $1,500 cash for a 24-year-old Neenah man charged for entering a North Fond du Lac man’s home and trying to rob him. Cornelius Pearson was already being held in the Fond du Lac County Jail on a probation hold. A 26-year-old North Fond du Lac man tried to arrange a sexual encounter on the internet site backpage.com. Two women waited in a vehicle down the street as Pearson allegedly entered the home with what looked like a gun. It was in fact an airsoft pistol. The man living there chased him out of the home. Police took Pearson into custody when the vehicle he tried to leave in broke down just down the block. He’s charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, and two counts of bail jumping. A plea and sentencing hearing is scheduled for October 20th and a jury trial if necessary on November 5th.
