Woman, 19, stabbed in Sunday morning fight
A 19-year-old woman was stabbed in the chest about 12:05 a.m. Sunday during an argument that started inside her apartment and ended outside the building, police said.
Sharon McGee, a resident of Miller Village apartments was confronted by several woman at her home who wanted to argue about a man. She and sister left the apartment but the argument turned physical and McGee was struck in the upper chest with a knife.
Cpl. Daryl Gordon and Cpl. Jeff Hornyak were working security at the complex when they learned of the disturbance. As they approached, the group dispersed, police said.
Detective Cpl. James Nielsen is investigating the stabbing. Anyone with information can call him at 881-4754.
Chicago man wanted for alleged rape
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Chicago man charged with rape and criminal deviant conduct at a former classmate’s home in Brunswick.
The victim told Detective Cpl. Shana Poirier-Peter she picked up Frederick Milsap, 43, from the train after he arrived from Chicago on June 23.
They went to her home and were talking when he “suddenly jumped on the bed with her,” tore her clothes from her and raped her, the probable cause affidavit states.
The victim’s sister called the house and sensed there was a problem, so she sent police there.
Milsap fled before police arrived. When he is apprehended, he will be held on $80,000 bail, court records show.
Police arrest man who allegedly looted wire from Horace Mann
A woman who walks the track at the shuttered Horace Mann High School regularly alerted police to a burglar she had seen carrying duffle bags from the building last week.
The witness told Cpl. Cory House she had seen the suspect carrying two green bags out a north door of the school.
House saw the suspect and called for backup to assist in arresting Keith Anthony, 41, of 1992 Connecticut St. He is charged with burglary, theft and criminal trespass.
Police found copper wire in one bag and tools in the other, the probable cause affidavit states.
Anthony was charged with burglary and other felonies in October 2010. He served one year in the county work release program.
More suspected human bones recovered
Police recovered more suspected human bones from 9th Avenue west of Grant Street, where they found others just days earlier.
The bones were collected Saturday night by Lake County deputy coroners who will have them tested to determine if the two sets are from the same person.
Investigators believe the first bones, found Aug. 1, are Chevezon Jones, who disappeared July 2 when he left his job at The Hook Up at 13th Avenue and Broadway. His car was found later; it had been burned.
Jones is presumed dead, but investigators must wait for DNA results to confirm his identity.
