Randall Bean, the man charged with three counts of attempted murder for allegedly stabbing three people on the south side of town last month, made his first court appearance last week.
Bean’s case was continued on the motion of the state’s attorney to April 13 at 9 a.m., according to Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Colin Simpson. The 22-year-old suspect was in court only briefly. He is being held on $1 million bond at the Cook County Jail.
Bean is charged with stabbing two women and a 2-year-old boy on the evening of March 26. The first stabbing allegedly took place in the parking lot of the apartment building at 1218 Circle Ave. where police say Bean lived. There, Bean allegedly broke into another first floor apartment and attacked a 50-year-old woman, stabbing her in the neck in the parking lot outside her apartment.
The woman, whose identity has not been released by police, was treated and released from Loyola Medical Center in Maywood.
After stabbing the 50-year-old woman, Bean allegedly ran east through an alley and attacked a 26-year-old mother and her toddler as they sat on the front porch of their home at 1227 Marengo Ave.
That woman suffered defensive wounds to her arms and hands, according to her husband, and the toddler was cut behind his left shoulder. Authorities are also withholding the identity of those victims. Both were treated at Loyola and released, according to police.
