A Matteson woman is being held on bail after she allegedly ran over her ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend Thursday in Park Forest, prosecutors said.
Alexius Keys, 20, was ordered held in lieu of $750,000 bail on an attempted murder charge in a Cook County Bond Court hearing Sunday.
Police were called to the 400 block of Rutledge Street in Park Forest about 6 p.m. Thursday after Keys saw her former boyfriend driving with his new girlfriend, according to court documents.
After seeing the couple, Keys rear-ended their vehicle, causing them to stop and get out, Assistant State's Attorney Anthony Gattuso said.
At that point, Keys drove in reverse across a lawn and struck the woman, Gattuso said in court.
She ran the woman over and dragged her several feet under the vehicle, Gattuso said.
The woman suffered a broken arm, back fractures, a bruised lung, rib fractures and had a layer of skin scraped from her lower back and buttocks, he said.
Keys collapsed during her bond hearing, then was taken out of court as she shouted, "I love y'all" and "forgive me," to family in attendance.
Keys' family declined to comment.
