QUINCY -- A Quincy man made his first court appearance Thursday in Adams County after he reportedly broke into an apartment on the city's north side and battered a woman.

Kordell N. Tucker, 22, faces charges of home invasion, a Class X felony; residential burglary, a Class 1 felony; aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony; and unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle.

Charging documents allege that Tucker broke into an apartment Thursday in the 1400 block of Koch's Lane knowing a woman was present, and that he struck the woman with his fists. He also reportedly drove a 2015 Kia Optima that he knew was stolen.

Judge Debra Wellborn set bond at $250,000 at the request of First Assistant State's Attorney Todd Eyler, who said the woman was hospitalized because of injuries she suffered. Blessing Hospital reported the woman was in fair condition in a medical surgical unit.

Andrew Mays, a public defender who handles bond court, asked for a $75,000 bond.

Chief Public Defender Todd Nelson was appointed to represent Tucker, who is set to return to court Monday for a preliminary hearing.
