SYCAMORE – A 39-year-old DeKalb man accused of stabbing another man in the head last year appeared in DeKalb County court for the first time Thursday.

Pedro Lopez-Esquivel, of the 1000 block of Hillcrest Drive, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery, which typically is punishable by up to five years in prison.

He allegedly stabbed a man in the head, causing a wound that required stitches, court records show.

That incident occurred on Oct. 20, 2012, court records show. Lopez-Esquivel remained in DeKalb County Jail on Thursday night, unable to post 10 percent of his $150,000 bond. His next court date is Tuesday.
