LOCKPORT, IL – A late-night stabbing in the parking lot of Challenge Fitness in Lockport escalated into a high-speed chase along Interstate 80, culminating in the dramatic arrest of a Plainfield man. The incident, which began late Sunday and extended into early Monday, initiated a pursuit involving Morris and Minooka Police Departments.

The suspect, after fleeing the fitness center’s scene, led authorities on a westbound chase along I-80. Minooka Police later intervened by deploying spike strips, attempting to halt the suspect’s frantic escape. In a tense moment, the suspect’s vehicle rammed into a K9 squad car, resulting in the hospitalization of a female officer. Fortunately, she was reported to be unharmed.

Utilizing advanced Flock Safety technology, law enforcement quickly identified the suspect’s vehicle. The chase reached a climax at a rest stop along I-80, where the suspect, in a last-ditch effort to evade arrest, charged at the officers. A Minooka Police Officer successfully subdued him with a taser, leading to his immediate custody at the scene.
