The scary incident happened recently in Riverwoods. The local police were called by witnesses to a crime scene. The problem was a stabbing. This could go either way, bad or really bad. The suspect was a 71-year-old man named Joseph Austin. He's old enough to be a grandfather and to know better.

The guy stabbed two people with scissors. Being stuck by a nail or knife is bad enough. As I look at a pair of scissors, getting stabbed with some would be awful. Unfortunately, at this point, there aren't a lot of details. This is the kind of story where I really want to find out more about the situation. Apparently, the old guy got upset for some reason and attacked the other two.

A Riverwoods man accused of stabbing two people with a pair of scissors last month was arrested Tuesday in New Lenox.


Austin is charged with four counts of aggravated battery to one victim and two counts of aggravated battery to another victim.
