Tow truck operators for Joe's Towing and Recovery work at the intersection of Washington and Clinton streets after a Bloomington police vehicle and another car collided Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019. The police officer was responding to a report of a stabbing on Hall Court when the crash occurred, police said.

BLOOMINGTON — A Bloomington man was charged Friday with stabbing his roommate Thursday night at an east-side apartment building.

Sean Robinson, 32, faces two counts of aggravated battery.

According to a probable-cause statement read in court by Assistant State’s Attorney Aaron Fredrick, Robinson stabbed his 43-year-old roommate after the victim confronted him about a missing debit card.

Bloomington officers were called to an apartment building in the 2600 block of Hall Court around 10:50 p.m. Thursday.

The victim was taken to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury consistent with a stab wound, said police. He told officers his roommate stabbed him during an argument and then fled from the residence.

Robinson was jailed lieu of posting $1,535 and ordered to have no contact with the victim or the residence the two men shared.

While responding to the reported stabbing, a Bloomington police officer's squad car collided with another vehicle at Clinton and Washington streets.

The officer was eastbound on Washington with emergency lights and sirens activated, and the other car was headed north on Clinton when the accident occurred, police said.

The officer was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Bloomington police are investigating the accident. No further information was available Friday.

The stabbing case remains under investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Brad Melton at 309-434-2537 or bmelton@cityblm.org. To remain anonymous, call McLean County Crime Stoppers at 309-828-1111.
