A Hanover Park man is in custody following a weekend altercation in Glendale Heights in which he was charged with stabbing his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend and lacerating the man's kidney, authorities said.

Steven Boyd, 23, of the 500 block of Edison Circle, was charged with aggravated battery and is being held in DuPage County jail on $250,000 bond.

Glendale Heights police said officers responded to a report of a stabbing at 1:20 a.m. Saturday in the 2300 block of Century Point. When they arrived, Sgt. Douglas Flint said officers found the victim had been stabbed twice, once on each side of his rear torso.

Boyd's next court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday in front of Judge George Bakalis.

Court records indicate Boyd pleaded guilty earlier this month to obstructing identification in a driving case and received court supervision.

In 2009, Boyd pleaded guilty to aggravated domestic battery. Prosecutors said he punched his girlfriend twice in the face at a hotel in Oakbrook Terrace. The victim suffered a broken jaw that left her to eat through a straw for six months. He received 42 months in prison.

In 2010, Boyd pleaded guilty to punching the same girlfriend in the face, causing a cut, swelling and other injuries, during an altercation in Hanover Park. He received 180 days in jail and two years of probation.
