A Maywood woman faces a charge of attempted murder after allegedly stabbing a Brookfield man at his home in the 4400 block of Madison Avenue on April 11.
Based on information shared with area police agencies in the wake of the stabbing, Broadview police detained Brianna Cubie, 27, during a traffic stop at about 2 a.m. on May 23 and turned her over to Brookfield investigators.
While Cubie’s last registered address is in Maywood, she had been living for some months at the home on Madison Avenue in Brookfield, according to police. She had fled the area after allegedly stabbing the victim in the upper left chest with a knife that police reported recovering at the scene.
Police quickly identified a suspect and launched a search near the scene of the incident immediately following the stabbing. Police requested soft lockdowns at two schools on the village’s south end, but called off the search after two hours.
Brookfield investigators broadcast Cubie’s information to other police agencies, since she was known to travel around the western suburbs.
The victim was hospitalized for four days and released after being treated for the stab wound.
The Cook County State’s Attorney approved charging Cubie with attempted murder, a Class X felony that carries a prison sentence of between six and 30 years, if convicted. Cubie was expected to appear for a bond hearing at the Maybrook courthouse on May 24 after the Landmark’s press time.
“I am thankful that the criminal investigation into this matter is complete, as detectives have been diligently searching for this woman since it occurred, as well as checking-in with the victim and communicating with the Assistant States Attorney’s Office,” said Brookfield Police Chief Michael Kuruvilla. “We will continue to monitor and be involved in the court proceedings that now follow.”
