The FBI is Seeking the Public's Assistance in Locating a Home Invasion Suspect

The FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office is assisting the FBI’s Chicago Field Office and Cook County officials in attempting to locate a male suspect who was convicted on November 8th on state charges of committing a home invasion attack in October 2016 in Cook County, Illinois.

Kopacz attempted to sexually assault a victim who had been asleep in the home during the home invasion. Kopacz, who was convicted in absentia after fleeing while on bond during his trial, is a registered sex offender. In December, Kopacz was charged federally with Unlawful Flight to Avoid Confinement after authorities established that he fled the state of Illinois.

Kopacz is believed to have been in contact with associates in Riverside County and may be traveling in Southern California. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Kopacz is urged to contact the FBI. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered in exchange for information leading to his arrest.
