Rockford Scanner™: Two Juveniles Stabbed, One Person In Custody





Freeport, IL. – 17 year-old girl in custody following an investigation into a large fight that resulted in two juveniles being stabbed.

On June 21st, 2018, at approximately 1:54pm, Freeport Police officers responded to the intersection of Benton Avenue and Jackson Street for a report of a group of approximately fifteen juveniles fighting.

Responding officers located two female juveniles who had reportedly been stabbed by a 17 year-old female juvenile who fled the scene on foot prior to officer’s arrival.

Both of the juvenile stabbing victims were subsequently transported to Freeport Health Network Memorial Hospital by Freeport Fire Department ambulances.

Within minutes of responding to the scene Freeport Police officers located the 17 year-old female juvenile suspect at a home in the 200 block of S. Cherry Avenue, and she was taken into custody without incident.

One of the victims, a 15 year-old female juvenile, was stabbed in the throat area and she was transferred to a Rockford area hospital.

The other victim, a 16 year-old female juvenile, sustained stab wounds to a shoulder and her head, and she is still being treated at FHN Memorial Hospital.

Both victims are in stable condition and neither have life-threatening injuries.

We are not looking for any additional suspects in this case but we are still investigating the actions of other juveniles who may have been involved in the initial fight.

At this time it is believed that this incident started with a pre-arranged fight between two opposing groups of juveniles who have had prior animus.

The 17 year-old female juvenile suspect has been charged with nine (9) counts of Aggravated Battery and she is being held at the Mary Davis Juvenile Detention facility in Galesburg. A detention hearing for the suspect has been scheduled for tomorrow at 2:00pm.

(Any person or persons mentioned in this press release are presumed innocent by the court until proven guilty in a court of law.)


ACCUSED: Female Juvenile (name withheld)
AGE: 17


3 Counts: Aggravated Battery (Deadly Weapon)

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of north central Illinois and
northeast Illinois, including the following areas, in north
central Illinois, Boone, DeKalb, La Salle, Lee, Ogle, and
Winnebago. In northeast Illinois, Cook, DuPage, Grundy, Kane,
Kendall, Lake IL, McHenry, and Will.

* Through Friday mid morning

* Several rounds of heavy rain producing showers and thunderstorms
will move into the area both this morning into the mid
afternoon, then again overnight.

These storms have the potential
to produce localized flash flooding as many locations across
these areas have received significant rainfall in the past week.
Rainfall amounts of 1 and a half inches up to 3 inches are
expected, with localized areas up to 4 inches.

* Area rivers and streams are running high, which will mean
rainfall will more quickly go into runoff. Urban and small
stream flooding is likely.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
