Mother/daughter stabbing rampage at Chicago school


From Chicago Tribune…

A mother and daughter allegedly beat up and stabbed a Chicago Public Schools administrator and security guard when picking up a relative at an Englewood elementary school earlier this week, a prosecutor said Saturday.

Debbie Wilson, 45, of the 6900 block of South Racine Avenue, and her daughter, also named Debbie Wilson, 26, of the 5600 block of South Wood Street, were both charged with aggravated battery to a school employee. The elder Wilson was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bail, and her daughter was ordered held in lieu of $125,000 bail in Cook County court Saturday.

The Wilsons went to Carrie Jacobs Bond Elementary School, 7050 S. May St., on Tuesday to pick up a relative for a disciplinary issue when they saw the girl walking with a school administrator and a verbal altercation broke out, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Reginald Newton.

At one point during the altercation, the younger Wilson pulled out a 4-inch knife, and the school administrator, 39, was stabbed in the back, while a security guard, 50, was stabbed in the forearm. A 13-year-old minor who got involved was also cut with the knife.
