A Fontana man faces charges after a hostage incident in Lake Geneva on Sunday.
Marc A. Fiorillo, 23, of Fontana, was arrested on charges of armed robbery with use of force, false imprisonment, burglary and resisting an officer, according to a Facebook post from the Lake Geneva Police Department.
Lake Geneva police responded to the 100 block of West Street in Lake Geneva at 4:12 a.m. Sunday for a report of a man being held hostage with a knife to his throat, according to police.
Fiorillo exited a residence with a knife in hand shortly after police arrived, according to the post. When police made an announcement to him, Fiorillo fled on foot, dropped the knife and fell down an embankment.
A resident told police he woke up to find Fiorillo holding a towel over his face and a knife to his throat demanding money and drugs, according to police.
Fiorillo allowed the resident to call other residents to demand drugs and money, according to police. The other residents called 911.
Police do not believe Fiorillo knew any of the occupants of the residence, according to police.
A $20,000 cash bond was set for Fiorillo in Walworth County Court on Monday, according to online court documents.
His next court appearance is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. Friday.
