Joliet police continue to search for a woman who allegedly stabbed another woman in the neck and torso with a knife.

On Jan. 23, Will County Judge Fred Harvey signed a warrant for the arrest of Shea T. Schiltz, 21, of the 100 block of Edison Road on a charge of aggravated battery. Her warrant carries a bond of $100,000, of which 10 percent would be needed for bail.

Schiltz allegedly stabbed a woman in the neck with a knife, according to a criminal complaint. She also allegedly stabbed the same woman about the torso with the knife.

Joliet police Sgt. Christopher Botzum said in an email that Schiltz still has an active Will County warrant and police are still looking for her.

“There is not more that we can say in reference to the case then what has already been stated due to it still being an ongoing investigation,” Botzum said.

He said anyone with information can call Crimestoppers of Will County at 800-323-6734 or the Joliet Police Department at 815-724-3100.

The warrant states Schiltz is 5-foot-4 in height, 130 pounds, and has brown hair and hazel eyes. Her place of employment is not known, according to the warrant.

Schiltz filed a protective order against two people in 2016 and 2012. Schiltz’s protective order in 2016 was denied and it was eventually dismissed.

Her protective order in 2012 was granted. It was dismissed in 2014.
