Davenport man facing long list of charges in home invasion and two burglaries
BETTENDORF, Iowa — A Davenport man has been arrested and charged with home invasion, assault and a handful of other charges after allegedly breaking into a Bettendorf home early Monday morning, attacking residents in the home with a hammer and other weapons, and then fleeing.
Daniel D. Webb, 41, is in the Scott County Jail where he was transported after being taken down with a taser by Bettendorf police, who pursued him after they say he broke into a home in the 1100 block of Grant Street shortly after 5:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 31. According to the arrest affidavit, Webb forcibly entered the Grant Street home through its back door, wearing a bandana over his face and a dark stocking cap. Once he was inside, police say he struck one victim in the face causing a bloody nose, grabbed a purse in the living room, and attempted to leave.
However, the first victim’s screams woke up two other sleeping residents, one of whom tried to grab the purse from Webb. The affidavit says Webb then threw plates and a stove top grate at one of the other residents, injuring her hand. He then left the home, grabbed a four pound hammer from the outside grill, and re-entered the house threatening “I’m gonna kill all of you.”
A home resident then pushed Webb out the door into the backyard, where a fight broke out. According to police, Webb struck a third victim in the face and on top of the head with a hammer, then fled the scene on foot. Police had been called by the other victims, and Webb was chased, tasered and apprehended by Bettendorf officers.
While Webb was being processed, police said, they found a black BB gun with a silencer on the property, which appeared to have been dropped by Webb.
For the home invasion incident, Webb is being charged with 1st degree burglary, willful injury, assault while displaying a weapon, two counts of assault with injury and interference with official acts.
In addition, Webb is being charged with 3rd degree burglary and criminal mischief for allegedly burglarizing Lourdes Elementary School in Bettendorf the night of Sunday, Oct. 30 and burglary of a motor vehicle and criminal mischief for allegedly breaking into a car parked at the Isle of Casino parking lot that same night.
