My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
So what ended up happening was my girlfriend who still lives with her father invited me over to stay the night. She gave me permission to come and stay there without her father knowing. We where both asleep and her father comes into her room for an unknown reason and I guess seems me there. He then grabs me by the throat and says he’s going to kill me while throwing various other threats at me. He then leaves the room to go grab a knife out of the kitchen i presume when my girlfriend is telling me to grab my stuff and run I make it to the front door and he catches up, then he again grabs me by the throat and threatens me more before I make it out the door and run. If he decides to call the police who would have grounds to press charges. I understand under section 63 of trespassing you can’t be on someone’s property without permission but a legal resident my girlfriend gave me permission to be there, and when he was chocking next and threatening me I didn’t fight back in anyway.
