A Chicago man and woman allegedly lured a man into an apartment Friday and attacked him with a meat cleaver and a stun gun.

Brian Herman, of the 100 block of West Raye Drive in Chicago Heights, and Shaquietta Brison, of the 0-100 block of South Mayfield Avenue, both face attempted murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon charges in connection to the Friday incident, according to the Chicago Tribune.

A 19-year-old victim was lured into Brison’s apartment Friday where he was allegedly attacked by Herman, who was using a meat cleaver, while Brison jolted the teen with a stun gun, the Tribune reported.

Herman was reportedly ordered held in lieu of $750,000 and Brison’s bail was set at $100,000 Sunday.

The teen victim was transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital where he was treated for cuts to three fingers, which required surgery, and abrasions to his face and fingers.

Court records reportedly show the duo initially told police the victim broke into the apartment and Herman attacked him because he choked Brison and was about to sexually assault her, but Brison later recanted and told police what really happened.
