Bond was set at $100,000 for a 29-year-old woman who allegedly slashed and seriously injured her neighbor’s arm with a boxcutter during an argument in Zion.
Sureshia Cabell-McKinney, 29, of Zion, was charged with aggravated battery.
Cabell-McKinney and her neighbor were involved in an argument in Zion, Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Kelse Banks said during a bond hearing on Tuesday.
Surveillance video showed them pushing each other when the neighbor jumped back and held his arm.
Cabell-McKinney allegedly pursued the neighbor into a parking lot while she had a silver object in her hand, Banks said.
Zion police made contact with Cabell-McKinney and heard a metal object drop to the ground.
A boxcutter was recovered near where Cabell-McKinney was standing, Banks said.
The neighbor had a deep eight-inch long laceration from his palm to the forearm and he lost a lot of blood.
A tourniquet had to be used to help control the bleeding and the victim was transported by paramedics to an area hospital, Banks added.
The victim stated Cabell-McKinney cut him with the boxcutter.
Cabell-McKinney’s lawyer asked Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak for a personal recognizance bond because she had no past felony or misdemeanor convictions.
Cabell-McKinney had active cases, including one where she was charged with battery, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and assault, Potkonjak said.
Potkonjak set Cabell-McKinney’s bond at $100,000.
Cabell-McKinney remains held at the Lake County Jail. She is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on July 6.
