BOND SET FOR PALATINE TOWNSHIP MAN CHARGED IN STABBING OF TWO
Tuesday, February 10, 2009 — Bond has been set at $150,000 for a Palatine Township man charged with stabbing two men late Sunday evening, the Office of Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.
Alejandro Suarez-Guzman, 26, of 2414 Jennifer Lane, was charged Monday afternoon with two counts of aggravated battery by Cook County Sheriff’s Police detectives.
On Sunday about 10:25 p.m., Suarez-Guzman was with the two victims in an apartment in the 2400 block of Randall Road in unincorporated Palatine Township. The three men, who were acquainted, got into an argument and the two victims threw the offender out of the apartment.
A short time later, Suarez-Guzman returned with a knife, entered the apartment and began stabbing the two men. One man, age 27, sustained stab wounds to the elbow and the second man, age 24, was stabbed in the chest. The victim stabbed in the chest was being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. The injuries to both men are not life threatening.
Sheriff’s Police were dispatched to the apartment following a 911 call of an aggravated battery. When officers arrived, Suarez-Guzman was still there and he was taken into custody without incident.
Bond was set Tuesday in 3rd District Circuit Court in Rolling Meadows. He is slated to appear again in court Feb. 27.
