A Crystal Lake woman was taken into custody after she allegedly charged at three police officers while armed with a knife in Crystal Lake, court records show.
Tammy M. Looper, 55, of Crystal Lake, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer, a Class 4 felony.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said the Crystal Lake Police Department responded to Looper’s residence in the 0-100 block of South Williams Street.
Officers were on scene around 7:14 p.m. Saturday when Looper placed three uniformed officers in apprehension of being attacked, the complaint said.
Looper was armed with a steel knife and charged at the officers that were at the apartment, the complaint said.
Looper was taken into custody and transported to the McHenry County Jail.
Court records show Looper is on court supervision after pleading guilty in a driving while license suspended case in McHenry County.
McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt ordered Looper held on a $7,500 bond.
She remains held in the jail and would need to post $750 cash in order to be released.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 2.
