A woman was charged with displaying a hammer and chasing another woman in Bolingbrook, as well as damaging a home, court records show.
On Monday, Erica Turner, 19, of the 300 block of Woodcreek Drive in Bolingbrook was arrested by Romeoville police and taken to the Will County jail on charges of criminal damage to property, aggravated assault and assault in connection with the incident.
Romeoville Deputy Police Chief Brant Hromadka said Turner was apprehended on an active arrest warrant which stemmed from a Bolingbrook police investigation. The warrant carried a $3,000 bond and was signed by Judge Chrystel Gavlin on May 18.
A criminal complaint filed against Turner alleged that on April 5, she displayed a hammer, yelled and ran towards a woman, placing her “in reasonable apprehension of receiving a battery.”
The criminal complaint also alleged Turner damaged a home in the 800 block of Summit Lane in Bolingbrook on the same day. The damage did not exceed $500, the complaint said.
During a court hearing on Monday, a judge found probable cause to continue Turner's detention in jail and ordered her bond to remain at $3,000, court records show.
Turner was able to post 10% of her bond on Tuesday and she was released at midnight, according to the jail log.
The charges of criminal damage to property and aggravated assault are class A misdemeanors punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. The charge of assault is a class C misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of $1,500.
