Man charged with attempted murder in brutal attack, stabbing of woman near DePaul, police say

CHICAGO — Chicago police have charged a man in connection with a brutal attack of a woman who was stabbed near the DePaul campus in July.

The woman, 22, was hospitalized July 18 around 4 a.m. after police said she was found on the 2300 block of North Halsted Street with lacerations to her neck and face.

Adam Bramwell, 32, was formally charged Thursday after he was brought to Chicago from Texas. He was charged with several felonies including attempted first degree murder.

Police said Bramwell was also wanted in connection to a carjacking and battery that occurred on July 13 in Lincoln Park.

Bramwell will appear in court Friday.

Police determined the attack may have been sexually motivated, but the woman fought back, which likely saved her life.
