Bond Denied For Man Accused In Stabbing Incident

Bond was denied for a Chicago man accused of stabbing a woman multiple times at a Naperville hotel earlier this month, according to a press release by DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and Naperville Police Chief Jason Arres. Willie Tidwell, 50, appeared at a bond hearing Saturday for the September 10 incident. It’s alleged that just after 9:15 p.m. that day, Tidwell went to the Extended Stay at 1827 Center Point Circle, where a woman he had been involved with romantically was staying. Once in her room, police say Tidwell and the victim fought. He allegedly hit her repeatedly, then pulled out a knife and stabbed her eleven times about her stomach, neck, and chest. Police say he then left the scene and the victim called 911. Tidwell was later identified as the suspect and taken into custody at a home in Calumet City on September 30. The victim is recovering from her injuries. Tidwell next appears in court on October 31, 2022.
