A Joliet man who was arrested and jailed twice this year was once again arrested, this time on probable cause of home invasion, aggravated battery of a victim older than 60 and aggravated domestic battery, according to jail records.

About 2 a.m. Saturday, Ricky Walker of the 300 block of South Joliet Street was booked into the Will County jail on probable cause of home invasion, aggravated battery and aggravated domestic battery, records show.

Walker’s bond was set at $100,000.

Joliet police Sgt. Christopher Botzum did not provide information about Walker’s arrest Monday.

Walker, 49, has already been arrested twice this year.

On March 8, he was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing at the downtown branch of the Joliet Public Library, disorderly conduct, domestic battery and resisting police, according to court and jail records.

Walker was held on a $200,000 bond but was released on his own recognizance in June, court records show.

On Sept. 20, Walker was taken to jail again on disorderly conduct, domestic battery, criminal trespass and resisting police charges. He was charged Aug. 27 with trespassing at AutoZone at 409 E. Cass St. after receiving a notice to leave the store, according to a criminal complaint.

Walker was released Sept. 25 after a judge agreed to reinstate his previous bond in his other criminal cases, court records show.
