An Illinois man was charged with stabbing his brother-in-law more than 20 times on a Chicago bus, partially disemboweling him, The Chicago Tribune reported.

Darnell Scott, 37, allegedly stabbed his 50-year-old brother-in-law with a 2-inch pocket knife while riding the city bus at 6:30 pm on Thursday, prosecutors said, resulting in wounds to the victim’s abdomen, arms, legs, neck, and head. Scott received only minor injuries in the assault.

The brother-in-law, whose name was not released, survived but is in critical condition. 

According to the victim, Scott and his brother-in-law did not have a friendly relationship, and when Scott saw his brother-in-law on the bus, he walked past him without saying a word.

The brother-in-law approached Scott, however, and asked him if he had previously sent people to “jump him,” according to the victim’s account. Scott allegedly began punching him, wrestling him to the floor and pulling out his knife. 

The encounter was captured on cellphone video, and Scott reportedly admitted to stabbing the victim.

Scott, who was denied bail, was charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm. He is expected to return to court next week.

Scott is a married father of three, according to the Tribune.
