Man stabbed woman with screwdriver and knives in 12-hour ordeal, police say | Crime and courts
CROWN POINT – An east Chicago man was wanted on Thursday for holding a woman against her will for 12 hours, stabbing her with knives and a screwdriver, punching her in the head with a 5-pound dumbbell and strangled her until she passed out.
Darion R. Carter, 46, is accused of telling the woman: “You are going to die” and “You will not make it”, after coming up behind her as she was sitting on a series of steps and dragging her to a basement apartment in the 3700 block of Fir Street in East Chicago.
The woman was eventually able to escape and was treated at Sainte-Catherine Hospital for a screwdriver injury to the abdomen, multiple screwdriver injuries to the left thigh , knife wounds to the arms, knife wounds all over the body, blood loss and pain, Lake Criminal Court records say. She was then transferred to a Chicago hospital.
The woman told police Carter told her during the ordeal that he was related to Lake County District Attorney Bernard Carter and that he “was not going to spend a day in jail.”
Prosecutor Carter has stated that Darion Carter is the son of his half-brother, but that he hasn’t had much contact with Darion Carter over the years.
“I have met him several times,” said Prosecutor Carter. “I do not know him.”
Bernard Carter said he would expect to pay the consequences if he got a speeding ticket, and that it was reckless of Darion Carter to use his name.
