Woman with pink metal knuckles stabbed man at Riverwalk Homes, police say

Man’s stab wound not life threatening, police said

Two women were arrested in connection with stabbing a man during an altercation at Riverwalk Homes in Joliet, police said.

About 2 a.m. Monday, officers responded to the Riverwalk Homes apartment complex on North Broadway Street for a disturbance, Joliet police Sgt. Dwayne English said.

Officers arrived and determined that a man had been stabbed in the back, English said.

An argument ensued between the occupants of an apartment at Riverwalk Homes and two women, Alexis Pringle, 23, and Aaliyah Pringle, 25, English said. The two women were beating on an apartment door before the confrontation, he said.

During the argument, Aaliyah Pringle punched a woman in the head and Alexis Pringle stabbed a man in the back with a knife, English said.

The man’s injury was not life-threatening and he was taken by ambulance to AMITA Health Saint Jospeh Medical Center in Joliet, English said.

Officers also determined Alexis Pringle possessed brass knuckles during the confrontation, English said.

Both women were located by officers and taken into custody without incident.

Prosecutors later charged Alexis Pringle with felony aggravated battery and unlawful use of a weapon. The charges accused Alexis Pringle of stabbing the man in the back with a knife and unlawfully possessing a set of pink metal knuckles.

Aaliyah Pringle was arrested on probable cause of battery and on two Will County arrest warrants. Court records did not show charges filed against Aaliyah Pringle in connection with Monday’s incident as of Wednesday.
