A Joliet woman is in jail today after authorities said she stabbed two Bolingbrook officers with a pen over the weekend inside the Bolingbrook Police Department’s headquarters.
Dawn Hogue, 31, of the 300 block of Oak Street in Joliet, is being charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a police officer and resisting or obstructing a peace officer following Saturday's incident.
Hogue was found at 7:30 a.m. in the Police Department’s lobby, where officers said she had made a mess. Hogue told officers she had nowhere to go and was told police could call a chaplain for her or help her find shelter, according to reports.
Eventually, police placed her at Groundworks, a social services agency in Joliet. But after about an hour, officers said Hogue reappeared in the Police Department’s lobby.
This time, officers said Hogue was behaving irrationally, and when police called the Bolingbrook Fire Department to perform an evaluation, she tried to leave. Police said officers tried to stop her and Hogue stabbed two of them with a pen, leaving wounds.
Bolingbrook Lt. Michael Rompa said both officers were treated at for their injuries.
Hogue was treated at the hospital as well and taken into custody upon her release. She remains in the Will County Adult Detention Facility.
