QUINCY -- A Quincy man accused of attacking a Quincy police officer who was responding to a reported home invasion last month has pleaded not guilty to charges.

Court records show that Jonathan C. Davis pleaded not guilty to charges of home invasion and aggravated battery of a peace officer on Tuesday in Adams County Circuit Court.

The case was placed on the December jury trial docket.

Davis, 29, was arrested Sept. 17 after Quincy Police were called about 11:44 p.m. to a report of a burglary in progress in the 1700 block of South 47th Street. Davis reportedly attacked the first officer who arrived at the scene. After a brief altercation, Davis was arrested.

The Quincy Police Department said officers later learned that Davis had entered the home and battered the resident before officers arrived.

The resident, a 63-year-old woman, and the officer did not require immediate medical treatment.

Davis has been held in the Adams County Jail on $250,000 bond since his arrest. He is set to return to court Nov. 12 for a status hearing.
