Racine man accused of breaking into a house, stabbing man, stealing three TVs

RACINE — A Racine man has been accused of breaking into a house, stabbing a man and stealing three TVs from him.

The White House is defending its decision to restrict travel from South Africa and seven other African nations, insisting the decision was not meant to punish those countries but protect Americans from the new omicron coronavirus variant. President Joe Biden Biden moved to restrict travel from those countries effective Monday in a bid to give scientists time to learn more about the new omicron variant of the coronavirus, which has not yet been detected in the United States. South African officials argued they are being punished for speedily identifying and reporting the new variant. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration "will continue to assess what steps we need to take to protect the American people." She also commended South Africa for discovering the new variant and quickly communicating it's existence to leaders across the globe.

Davonte M. Carraway, 25, of the 500 block of Shelbourne Court, was charged with two felony counts of bail jumping, disorderly conduct and battery, felony counts of burglary while committing battery on a person, possession of a firearm by a felon and burglary of a building or dwelling and criminal damage to property, four misdemeanor counts of bail jumping, three misdemeanor counts of theft and misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.

According to criminal complaints:

At 3:23 p.m. on Sept. 12, 2020, an officer was sent to the 1500 block of Villa Street for a burglary and damage to property.

Upon arrival, the officer met with a man who said he returned home and saw Carraway smashing the windows of his landlord’s car. He confronted him and then Carraway displayed a gun before getting into a car. Upon entering his apartment, the man saw his three-flat screen TVs were missing and the window of his bathroom had been broken into. The total value of the TVs were $966.

At 3:38 a.m. on Jan. 23, an officer was sent to St. Catherine’s High School where he met with a man who was assaulted in the 1500 block of Villa Street. There was bruising to the left side of his face, his left eye was swollen and the webbing between his thumb and hand had a cut covered in dried blood. The man said that Carraway attacked him and damaged his property.

The man took the officer to his residence and the officer noticed blood drops throughout the place and a bloody handprint smeared on the door frame. The bed was flipped and clothes were tossed about in the bedroom. The man said he was dropped off by his sister after being out at a bar. As he entered his residence, he heard a knock at the door coming from Carraway. He then forced his way into the place and threatened to kill the man. The man ran around the dining room table and yelled at Carraway to leave. Carraway then got a knife and cut the man in the hand. He then kicked the man two times while he was on the ground.

Carraway was given $7,500 in cash bonds in Racine County Circuit Court on Monday. A preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 8 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
