CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Authorities say a northwest suburban Mount Prospect man stabbed his brother with a steak knife before ramming his vehicle into his brother's vehicle while his wounded brother was inside, attempting to call police.

Robert Jastrebski, 55, faces a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, the Sun-Times reports. His bond was set at $100,000 Sunday.

Authorities say police were called to Jastrebski's home Saturday by his brother, who said Jastrebski stabbed him twice in the abdomen with a steak knife.

The injured man got into his vehicle and dialed the police, while Jastrebski backed his vehicle into his brother's before fleeing the scene, authorities said.

Authorities caught up with Jastrebski, who eventually admitted he stabbed his brother. Prosecutors would not say what motivated the attack.
