Visit to Jail Lands Man in a Cell of His Own

June 20th, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Julius Price, 23, managed to evade police for two weeks. The Chicago man had been identified as the prime suspect in the stabbing of four Guardian Angels on a North Side “L” platform. Ironically, Price was arrested after attempting to visit his co-defendant, Keith Gunn, 34, at the Cook County Jail. When arrested, Price was carrying a Bible and a length of rope.

Prosecutors told the Chicago Tribune that Gunn had pistol-whipped a 27 year old passenger on the train in an attempt to steal the man’s cell phone. When he fled with the phone, four Angels caught him and brought him down to the ground. Price allegedly approached the group with a knife.

According to the report, Price stabbed one of the Angles in the lower abdomen and another in the upper arm, which took eleven stitches to close. He cut another on the right arm, sending that man to the hospital for seventeen stitches. Another Angel was stabbed on top of the head and was also bitten on the arm. Both Price and Gunn ran away but the attack was caught on security cameras.

Prosecutors say Price has a long criminal history. He was convicted of misdemeanor battery in 2005 and residential burglary in 2006. He was sentenced to eight years in prison for the burglary conviction. Price is now being charged with four counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and his bail has been set at $750,000.

The amount of Price’s bail indicates just how serious the charges against him are. Conviction could result in a very long prison sentence. If you have been arrested and charged with battery, it’s important to hire an experienced Rolling Meadows criminal defense attorney who can defend you and protect your rights.
