    Justin Foster, 28, is charged with attempted murder. He reportedly went to Atlanta and caught a flight to Chicago, where he rented a car and located a man who is allegedly dating Foster's ex-girlfriend. 

    Foster is accused of hitting the man over the head with a tire iron before carving his initials into the man's leg. He then cut off the man's penis and threw it over a fence before leaving him in a pool of blood. 

    The man survived, news outlets reported, but is left with permanent brain damage. 

    A prosecutor was quoted in the Tribune and argued against granting bond to Foster: 

    “We’re talking about a very heinous crime here," Assistant State’s Attorney Luis Muniz said. "A monetary bond is not appropriate.”
