A judge postponed the trial for a man accused of slashing a bicyclist’s throat on the South Side in September until the suspect is competent to stand trial.
The victim, Colin Albright, attended Anthony Scholl’s hearing by riding his bike to the court. He told Channel 11’s Brittny McGraw that he doesn’t hold a grudge.
“I know it was a random event. I don’t take it personally,” Albright said.
According to police, Albright, 25, was riding his bicycle home from work when he got off and began to carry it up a set of city steps towards Josephine Street.
Investigators said Albright was approaching Josephine Street when he was attacked by Scholl.
Authorities said Scholl stabbed Albright in the head, arms and neck before slashing his throat.
“He stabbed me a couple of times in the back of the head. I didn’t actually know he was stabbing me because I couldn’t feel anything,” Albright said.
Shortly after the attack police released surveillance video that showed Albright on the same set of steps that Albright was on.
