A Chicago Heights man has been charged with stabbing his girlfriend in the leg and fleeing the scene near Fox River Grove early Sunday morning, police said.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 1 a.m. Sunday to the 1000 block of South Road in unincorporated Fox River Grove.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Byrnes said deputies responded for a report of a domestic dispute.
An investigation revealed that Antonio Goldaracena, 35, had stabbed his girlfriend in the leg, Byrnes said.
Goldaracena, who resides in Chicago Heights, fled the scene after the incident.
The 35-year-old woman was transported to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Court documents said that Goldaracena used a knife to stab the victim, causing a deep gash that required 4-5 staples.
Goldaracena was located nearby the scene and taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies, Byrnes said.
Deputies discovered Goldaracena was in possession of a small amount of a substance believed to be cocaine.
Goldaracena was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a Class 3 felony, and possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony.
A McHenry County judge ordered Goldaracena held in the McHenry County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
Goldaracena was released from the jail on Wednesday after posting bond, records show.
