On Thursday, April 12, 2018 at approximately 4:21 p.m., Buffalo Grove Police Officers were called to a home in the 400 block of St. Mary’s Parkway after a female subject, later identified as Justice F. Murphy entered the home and allegedly battered a 51-year-old female resident. The resident was able to leave the home and proceeded to a neighbor’s home where a call was placed to 9-1-1.
When police officers arrived, Murphy was still inside the victim’s residence. Officers entered the home and took Murphy into custody without incident. Both the resident and Murphy were both transported by Buffalo Grove paramedics to Northwest Community Hospital for treatment. The resident was later released from the hospital. Murphy remains hospitalized for observation.
Murphy, 21, lives in the 2900 block of 244th Place in Sauk Village, Illinois. It has been determined that Murphy was visiting members of her family in Buffalo Grove prior to the incident. Police also learned there were no prior contacts between Murphy and the victim before this incident.
The Cook County State’s Attorney has approved charging Murphy with Class X Home Invasion, Class 4 Criminal Damage to Property and Class 3 Aggravated Battery.
This investigation is ongoing. Buffalo Grove Police will provide additional updates to the media as they become available.
