Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons filed charges this morning against a Bridgeview, Illinois man in connection with a weekend stabbing case in Glen Carbon.

Grant W. Connor (d.o.b. 8/8/85) has been charged with attempted murder and home invasion following his attack on a local couple.  Police were called to a home on Kinder Place in Glen Carbon at approximately 1:20 p.m. on Sunday, October 6, 2013.  Connor is alleged to have knocked on the door of the home using the pretense of a broken down car.  The male resident, 35, of the home offered the use of a phone, however, Connor physically charged him and began stabbing him with a knife.  The male resident was able to also grab a knife and stabbed the defendant in the throat.  While the incident was occurring, one female resident,

33, tried to help defend the male victim.  She was also stabbed.  While the struggle was occurring, another female resident called 911.  The victims were treated and released at an area hospital. . .
