Man Arrested for Stabbing Wife in the Throat in Violent Home Altercation

Julio Rubio is also accused of using the knife handle to knock out his wife's teeth and then fleeing when sheriff's deputies attempted to arrest him.

A Will County man who stabbed his wife in the throat and knocked out her teeth has been charged with aggravated domestic battery.

Julio A. Rubio, 36, of 21440 Franklin Circle, attacked his 35-year-old wife in their unincorporated at about 5 a.m. Tuesday, Will County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said.

The wife, whose name was not released, was taken to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital before being transported in serious condition to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.

"Mr. Rubio was very agitated and unfocused, and when one of our deputies approached him, he took off running," Hoffmeyer said.

They caught up with him at a house down the street where Rubio put his arms around a support column, she said. As they attempted to pull him away from it, the column gave way and collapsed, she said.

Rubio may have been under the influence of a controlled substance, which might explain his combative and erratic behavior, Hoffmeyer said. He was transported to Bolingbrook Hospital before being taken to the Will County jail, where he is currently being held without bond.

Deputies were able to talk to Rubio's wife, who told them she was watching television when her husband made his "unprovoked" attack, Hoffmeyer said. The woman fled to a neighbor's home, and he called the police.

In addition to aggravated domestic battery, Rubio has also been charged with resisting/obstructing a peace officer and criminal damage to property.

well it seems that he was beat up pretty bad too, as far I know this man was also a victim of domestic violence, the wife have beat him up before several times. i know that what he did is in no way acceptable, but what about when men are also victims of domestic violence? and if she knew that she was in danger why she didnt leave him? there always 2 sided of the story but we always go for the one that seems better!!

if the wife hits him , if you were a real man you would not hit back. Nice thing to happen in the neighborhood. I hope the wife is ok , and it is a shame that it had happened with the 3 children at the house. LET HIM ROT IN THE slammer. NO guy should hit a woman, even if they provoke the whole thing.

I'm sure there are pleanty of renters who don't beat their wives or take controlled substances. Also, it doesn't say anywhere in the story that the man is a renter versus a homeowner. But way to show your own stereotypes - your statement reveals a lot more about the ugliness in your heart.

How about no one should hit anyone. Period.

Seriously dude? Ur scum. Find someone your own size!

Did you ever think that maybe he looks like that because of the column collapsing on him? Did you ever think that maybe the police did that to him when they tried to capture him? Read statistics about why wives stay in a domestic situation. If he's a victim of domestic violence, why didn't HE leave?

He was wrong for what he did and should pay for his actions. However, its not ok for a woman to put her hands on a man bc she knows we are more than likely to walk away. Never put yourself in a position like that.

Where in the article does it mention that the wife ever abused him?

This man is phyco, him and his wife have 3 young children ... who saw everything.. for many years he has been beating his wife, he spits on her, and doesn't let her talk to her own family... what about the kids?? they will have nightmares for years to come ... he is getting less than 5 years for what he did to her... he is stocking her, leaving flowers outside her sisters home ... MY HEART GOES OUT TO HER AND HER 3 DAUGHTERS ... NO WOMAN SHOULD EVER THINK IT'S OK FOR A MAN TO BEAT HER... MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND MAY GOD WATCH OVER YOU AND YOUR GIRLS ...

everyone is talking about this man, and how didn't let his wife talk to her family, all this is a lie, like he use to spit on her.. actually it was all the way around every time he tried to reach his family she will get mad.. anyways he is not getting 5 years in prison in fact he was prove to be innocent he is free of any charges THE WIFE stab her self to have this guy go to prison.. Karma is B#$% because NOW she is the one who the DCFS (department of family) is looking for her for abusing her 3 daughters, the oldest one had a bruise on her face cover up with make-up they missing school days I wonder why?? SO NOW WHO IS THE CRAZY ONE WHO IS THE PSYCHO ONE... LIKE i SAID BEFORE THERE IS ALWAYS 2 SIDES OF THE STORY, and eventually the true is coming out...

this man deserve death penalty he had no right to do anything like this. He was probably under the influence of drugs ugly bastard.
Rose Aguirre April 17, 2013 at 10:16 PM
This Man is an absolute siko...he would beat on his wife and get drunk constantly..he would do drugs almost everyday "cocain" to be more specific. aside from this incident..acouple of years ago he got arrested for beating on a cop because he was going to get arrested due to being under the influence and cutting his veins infront of his 3 little girls and wife...he also burned his house down also while being on drugs...he almost destroyed his first house in chicago and he was running around the neighborhood half naked because of his cocain consumption...to the point where his own family didnt event want him over because he would get all paranoid and crazy...what father does all this crap infront of his kids...so please stop making up excuses for a dead beat dad and a crazy man....who has lived his life on drugs and expected his wife to be around dealing with his crap...thank god his wife and kids are away from him right now. or they would be dead if they were still next to him...what this man needs is serious jail and rehab time...not his family making up excuses for his behavior...
Rose Aguirre April 17, 2013 at 10:27 PM
PLease stop the lying!!!! you well know that this man is a cocain addict that needs rehab and jail time....it doesnt matter what you say no man cuts his wifes throat just because he feels like it..the evidence is with the police and in this article i dont think the police or sheriff's would lie about what happen nor the wittneses that were around when this happen...what you should do is focus on helping him to be a better man away from drugs and stop making excuses for what he did because you know that aside from this he did many other things...like burn his house...cut his veins...etc....and she never cut her self remember that's not what the police report says...and you and your DCFS Crap please you know that his family called DCFS to make her look bad...but at the end justice is the one that wins I guess DCFS realized that she is a good motherr and thats why she has her daughter with her...and thats why the man is still in court and know on child support....and the oldest having a bruise thats a story his sisters made up...what this family should focus on is on...the cocain siko thats out there..on the lesbian sister that is just plain crazy..on the prostitute sisters and the other brother thats involved in illegal stuff...focus on being there for the little girls that were wittnesses of so many ugly crazy things that the dad did and said...

Graceila All of that family is a bunch of dogs that eat each other up. Instead of saying shit about that person they should thank god that she did not report anything about that person and all the stuff they say about her is not true. There all LIES!!!!!!! Starting with you Angelica you are a slut that is seeing a bunch of men when she is still married. That mother of Angelica has a bunch of daughters that are sluts. Like Blanca and Tona they are lesbians and the Lilia is worser than a Slut because she got remarried four times and that son of bitch abortioned all her kids besides one. And of her kids starting with her sons they are bunch of pigs. Max brings her mom diffrent woman when he is married. And Pepe is a lasy ass pig that does not help his kids and intead he is robbing things. They are all ab bunch of alcoholics that the reason they go to parties is just to drink. At that stupid motherfucking mother that only likes to get money from her kids and she was a horrible person with her husband. When her husband was a good man and that he Rests In Piece. When he was sick and bad conditioned they never respected him. The Lilia is a slut and she is only witn her husband for the money but those persons do not know how to love. And that mother does not even love her own son.
