Darrick Sims | CPD

Update March 31, 2021 — Darrick Sims pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm. Judge Michael Hood sentenced him to two 7-year terms that will be served concurrently. Sims will also receive 589 days credit for time spent in jail before sentencing.

A Roseland man is being held without bail, accused of stabbing two people in the Old Town neighborhood this week.

Darrick Sims, 43, stabbed two men outside an apartment building on the 600 block of West Division at 10:45 p.m. Monday, prosecutors said. All of the men reportedly know each other, and the stabbings are listed as “domestic related” in police paperwork. The relationship amongst the men is not recorded.

Police said in a statement that a 47-year-old man was stabbed twice in the chest and once in the back during the altercation. A 44-year-old man was stabbed in the shoulder, armpit, upper arm, and forearm, according to police. Both men were stabilized after being transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Sims was taken into custody about five minutes after the alleged attack when police found him in the 1300 block of North Halsted.

Prosecutors charged Sims with two felony counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one felony count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm. Judge Charles Beach ordered him held without bail.
