A Bolingbrook man was charged with injuring two officers who heard loud screaming, banging and crashing sounds coming from inside his home, police said.

About 8:30 p.m. Saturday, officers were sent to the 400 block of Blair Lane in response to a disturbance and heard “loud screaming, loud banging and crashing sounds” coming from inside the home, Bolingbrook police Lt. Anthony Columbus said.

An officer knocked on the door and attempted to make contact with the people inside, Columbus said. The officers were able to see a woman and a man later identified as Stefan Stolarik, 30, inside the home, according to Columbus.

Stolarik refused to come to the door and yelled profanities before the lights inside the home were turned off, Columbus said.

As officers were about to make entry into the home, Stolarik left through the garage while “sweating and breathing heavily,” Columbus said. Stolarik cursed the officers and refused to allow them to check on the woman who was still in the residence, he said.

Stolarik attempted to run back inside the home and officers ordered him to stop, Columbus said. Stolarik turned towards the officer and began to “scratch, push and kick and swing” at the officer, he said.

Stolarik continued to fight with the officers until he was taken to the ground and arrested, Columbus said. The woman in the home had minor cuts and scrapes and refused medical assistance, he said.

Stolarik was booked into the Will County jail, but was released Monday after he posted bond.
