A 55-year-old Mount Prospect man is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday facing up to five years in prison on allegations he stabbed his brother Saturday during an argument.

Robert M. Jastrebski, of the 100 block of South Audrey Lane, is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a Class 3 felony, as a result of the altercation.

Mount Prospect police said officers responded to Jastrebski's home at 1:38 p.m. Saturday after a reported stabbing. While on their way to the scene, police learned that the suspect had fled the residence.

The victim, a 59-year-old Chicago resident, told officers he and his brother were arguing when the dispute turned violent and the suspect stabbed him in the abdomen and hand with a steak knife, police said. The Chicago man refused medical treatment for his injuries, which police said were not life threatening.

Another officer heading to South Audrey Lane observed Jastrebski's vehicle traveling south on Busse Road, made a traffic stop and took him into custody, police said.

Jastrebski appeared in court Sunday when a judge set his bond at $100,000. If found guilty he could face a maximum sentence of two to five years in prison.
