HOUSE GUEST ARRESTED IN INCIDENT WHERE MAN WAS BATTERED, PUT IN CAGE

Home > Press Page

Friday, October 17, 2014 A 27-year-old man wanted in connection with an aggravated domestic battery incident where another man was put in a dog cage and had hot wax thrown on him, has been apprehended, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

William Bailey, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was apprehended on Sunday in Berrien County, Mich., by local authorities. A $500,000 arrest warrant was issued for him last week for aggravated domestic battery. Bailey remains in custody at the Berrien County Jail, pending extradition.

According to the Sheriff’s Police investigation, detectives responded to an area hospital on Sept. 30 on a report of a battery.

They learned that the 47-year-old victim had been battered by Bailey, his cousin, who had been staying at the victim’s unincorporated Des Plaines apartment.

Bailey punched the victim and confined him to a dog cage, according to the investigation. He threw hot wax on the victim, and the victim was burned with cigarette lighter.

The victim was able to escape and went to the home of a neighbor, who called for help. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Bailey fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle, a gray/silver 1992 Toyota Camry. He was found Sunday in the victim’s vehicle.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
