COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — When he got out of jail, Jeremy Walker was ordered to take anger management classes. But the classes apparently did not help the 26-year-old Englewood man control his feelings earlier this week when he allegedly stabbed two people, prosecutors said.
Walker was charged with two counts each of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery causing great bodily harm after sending two men to the hospital shortly before midnight on Tuesday in the 2000 block of West 63rd Street, according to prosecutors and police.
Prosecutors said a 28-year-old man from Oak Lawn and 32-year-old man from Chicago suffered multiple stab wounds in the attack. One man suffered wounds to his right and left arm, right hand, finger and thumb.
Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said one victim was bleeding so profusely that a police officer had to remove his belt and use it as a tourniquet. He was later hospitalized in serious condition.
Walker, who prosecutors said has a long criminal record, was ordered to take anger management classes after his last stint in jail for possession of a stolen vehicle.
His bail was set at $300,000 during a Thursday hearing.
