BRADLEY — Keyomo T. Smith, of Kankakee, was charged with attempted first degree murder and aggravated battery for allegedly slashing a man's neck during a confrontation at a Bradley bar Monday night.

Judge Kathy Bradshaw-Elliott set Smith's bond at $1 million on Wednesday. His next court date is Oct. 22.

The 46-year-old Smith was arrested after surrendering to police a short time after the incident occurred in the beer garden at The Spot, 1010 W. Broadway St. about 9:30 p.m.

The male victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a 3- to 4-inch cut on his neck, Prosecutor Erika Hamer said during Wednesday's hearing.

Investigators talked to the victim and witnesses and were able to identify Smith as the suspect.

Bradley officers, with the assistance of Kankakee police and Kankakee County sheriff’s police, found Smith at a home in Kankakee. He was taken into custody without incident.
