STREATOR — A stabbing investigation that started early Saturday morning led to the arrest of a 29-year-old Streator man.
William J. Milian has been charged with aggravated domestic battery, Streator police said.
At about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Streator police and Advanced Medical Transport were called to the 1200 block of East Main Street about a domestic dispute and the stabbing of a 34-year-old woman. The victim was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital by AMT, and later was transported to another hospital, police said.
“The name and location of the hospital is being withheld for the protection of the victim at this time,” Streator police said in a press release Sunday afternoon.
The suspect, Milian, reportedly fled the area on foot prior to the officer’s arrival, Streator police said. Milian was located “a short time later” in the 1500 block East Morrell, police said.
Streator Police Department and La Salle County State’s Attorney’s Office are investigating.
