During an unrelated traffic stop on 95th Street, a Gateway Motel employee approached police officers asking for assistance regarding a disturbance at the motel at about 2 a.m. Thursday morning.
A guest at the motel was allegedly causing a disturbance by banging on the door and yelling at a high level. Other guests complained about the noise.
During the discussion, the police were told that the same guest had been causing a loud disturbance earlier in the day but the motel did not call the police because the man said he would “cool off” away from the motel and return to sleep.
The police officer made contact with the man at his room’s entrance. The man, identified as Ennis Cullum, alleged he was stabbed in the chest with a knife and lifted his shirt according to the police.
The police officer stated that he looked at Callum’s chest and reported that there was no sign of a stab wound. The police alleged that Callum was speaking in an excessively loud voice and he was told to keep his voice down to a reasonable level.
The officer alleged that Callum attempted to speak over the officers. The hotel employee agreed to sign a complaint against Callum for disorderly conduct. He was taken into custody and has a court date of January 11, 2018 in Bridgeview. Callum, a 55 year old black male provided a Mississippi address.
