Larvizo Brown


On April 1, an officer was sent to the 1600 block of Martin Luther King Drive for an assault. The officer met with the victim who said he and Brown were at the residence arguing over money. They began to fight in the bedroom and then spilled out to the living room where Brown grabbed a screwdriver and began stabbing the other man in the head and torso.

The officer then spoke to a witness who said he heard the victim screaming for help so he went and knocked on the door. He opened it and saw two men standing face to face and heard them arguing over money with Brown saying the victim owed him money.

The victim was taken to the hospital and was diagnosed with a punctured lung.

He said he was stabbed about 11 times.

Brown was given a $2,500 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Wednesday. A preliminary court hearing is set for April 14 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
