A Chicago man was arrested on charges alleging he threatened to kill his girlfriend and her three children in Romeoville, according to court records.

About 1 p.m. Wednesday, Antwyn Bowie, 31, of the 400 block of West 119th Street was arrested and taken to the Will County jail on charges of harassment by telephone, disorderly conduct and violating a protective order.

On April 1, Bowie threatened to kill his girlfriend, her two sons and her daughter, according to a criminal complaint. He also threatened to kill another woman and a man in Romeoville, the complaint said.

Another criminal complaint filed against Bowie said he violated his girlfriend’s protective order against him in April and May by making contact with her.

The girlfriend claimed in her petition for the protective order that Bowie threatened to kill her and her family. She claimed Bowie came to her house and she called the police to make a report.

“I am afraid he will kill me and my children,” her petition said.

A judge granted the order April 1 and it was extended May 13.

Bowie has three previous domestic battery convictions.

On Jan. 25, 2019, he pleaded guilty to felony domestic battery and was sentenced to two years in prison, according to court records.

On March 2, 2017, Bowie pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery and was sentenced to 50 days in jail and credited with 15 days served, court records show.

Bowie pleaded guilty to domestic battery in 2015, was sentenced to 45 days in jail and credited with 28 days served.
