A 38-year-old man was ordered held on a $950,000 bond after being charged with stabbing an off-duty police officer Monday in an auto pound in the South Deering neighborhood on the Far South Side.The victim was a 22-year-old off-duty officer from Indiana University Northwest in Gary, who was working security at the yard, authorities said.
Herviance A. Turman of the 10000 block of South Hoxie Avenue was charged Tuesday with attempted first-degree murder after he “surrendered himself into police custody” at 1:30 p.m. Monday, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County sheriff’s office.
Paramedics responded about 1:10 a.m. to a city-owned auto pound in the 10300 block of South Doty, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said.
Police said he may have interrupted Turman trying to break into a vehicle and, upon discovery, the suspect produced a “cutting instrument” and stabbed the officer.
He was stabbed in the “face or ear” and was taken with non-life-threatening injuries to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Langford said.
The officer was released from the hospital later Monday morning, according to Tom Wyatt, spokesman for IUN. He has been an IUN officer for about a year.
Turman was ordered held on $950,000 Wednesday, according to the sheriff’s office. He is next scheduled to appear in court March 14.
