Deputies arrested a Marengo man after he allegedly stabbed a relative with a carving fork multiple times near Marengo, court records show.
Brent H. Gibson, 50, of the 19600 block of Harmony Road in unincorporated Marengo, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and two counts of misdemeanor battery.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Byrnes said deputies were called around 2 a.m. last Saturday to the 19600 block of Harmony Road in unincorporated Marengo.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said an adult male victim had been stabbed.
The incident occurred at Gibson’s residence at Lehman’s Lakeside RV Resort.
The complaint said Gibson stabbed the victim in the shoulder and the shin using a carving fork. The victim is a relative of Gibson.
Byrnes said paramedics transported the victim to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Sheriff’s deputies arrest Gibson and transported him to the McHenry County Jail.
McHenry County Judge David Gervais initially ordered Gibson held on a $20,000 bond.
A motion was filed by Gibson’s public defender asking the court to reduce the man’s bond, saying Gibson is not a danger to the community and not a flight risk.
Gervais granted the motion and allowed Gibson to be released on a personal recognizance bond on Wednesday.
The most serious charge, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, is a Class 3 felony and carries two to five years in prison if convicted.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 29.
