Woman Reports Blood-Covered Scene, Police Say
She phoned 911 to report a gory scenario involving a child; the victim said she is a drug user, according to police. An arrest is merely an accusation and not evidence of a conviction.
Stephanie Stobiecki, 36, of Chicago, was charged with disorderly conduct and making a false report to 911 after she phoned 911 Oct. 9 just before 6 p.m.
She told the 911 dispatcher that she had been at a home in the 8400 block of Cumberland at about 8:30 a.m. and that she saw a 43-year-old man in the living room covered with blood, and a small child laying on the floor, according to the report. The child was about five or six years old, and the biological child of the man, she said.
Niles police went to the home for a well-being check and told the 43-year-old man what had transpired. He said he has an order of protection on his home, and he had not spoken to Stobiecki that day, according to the report. He allowed police to search the home, and they found no evidence of a criminal act as Stobiecki had described. The man told police he does not have a child, and that Stobiecki is a drug user, police said.
Police went to Stobiecki's home on Mozart Street and took her into custody. They took her to the Niles police station, where she was booked, processed and released on a D bond. Her court date is Dec. 3.
Police investigators have a copy of the 911 conversation and are investigating.
