BLOOMINGTON (25 News Now) - Bloomington Police have identified a local man accused repeatedly stabbing his girlfriend at their east side apartment Thursday night, and confirmed they believe it’s a case of domestic violence.

While the woman’s injuries were serious, she is expected to survive.

Police arrested Chance Young, 19, of Bloomington, for the stabbing that happened in an apartment the two shared in the 2100 block of Todd Drive, near East Empire Street.

Police booked Young on a single count of aggravated domestic battery, but the McLean County State’s Attorney’s office is expected to file formal charges prior to a Saturday afternoon bond hearing.

Young is being held in the McLean County Jail.
