Police have charged a 20-year-old man with allegedly beating and sexually assaulting an acquaintance in her Chicagoland home with a sword.
A 43-year-old woman called River Forest police early Thursday to report “acquaintance” Kenneth W. Merrills was still inside her home, armed with a sword that he used to assault her, the Tribune reports.
Citing a press release from police, the Sun-Times reports Merrills allegedly used the sword to beat, sexually assault and restrain the victim late Wednesday and early Thursday.
Merrills was taken into custody after police forced their way into the victim’s Lake Street home in suburban River Forest.
The victim was treated and released for “non-life-threatening injuries,”
Thankfully this woman survived this attack and is recovering but, there are definitely a couple of holes in this story. Since this maniac man was an ‘acquaintance’ and not an intruder, what the hell happened for him to attack her like that?? SMH.
