ELGIN, Ill. (STMW) – A 24-year-old Pingree Grove man was arrested early Saturday morning after he allegedly knifed several people outside the Tilted Kilt pub in northwest suburban Elgin.

Daniel D. Sanchez, of the 1100 block of Port Royal Road, was charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated battery for causing great bodily hard and two counts of aggravated battery for using a deadly weapon, according to a release from the Elgin Police Dept.

He is being held on $500,000 bond.

Police responded to the Tilted Kilt, 2300 Bushwood Dr., at 2:25 a.m. Saturday after a passerby alerted nearby officers that there was a fight in the parking lot, police said.

When they arrived, police found three people who had been stabbed. Two men — a 23-year-old Burlington man with a stab wound to the chest and a 24-year-old Elgin man who had been stabbed in the throat — were transported to area hospitals in critical condition, police said.

A 29-year-old Streamwood woman and another man were treated at the scene and released.

Sanchez was taken into custody at the scene, police said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Elgin Det. Scott St. John at (847) 289-2619.
