ROCK OUT: "Grunge Rocker" Escapes From Hospital

Unbelieveable. The story of the "Grunge rocker" who allegedly launched a one-man crime spree around Clark and Diversey this week keeps getting weirder.

After being admitted to Illinois Masonic Medical Center this morning for an "evaluation," the man who has allegedly stolen tip jars and signage, thrown coffee on a security guard, and broken car windows with a baseball bat did the nearly-impossible.

He escaped from Illinois Masonic.

Officers searched area streets and two possible residences for the man without success.

Illinois Masonic describes him as male, white, in his 30's, with long blonde dreadlocks and painted fingernails. He may be nude or in a hospital gown.

  1. I've encountered this "grunge rocker" man several times. This guy can be annoying but he is also capable of violence. Please be careful if you see this guy. I guess he will be especially easy to spot in a hospital gown.

  2. IS there a photo of this guy? I have a picture in my head who he is based on the description but a photo is worth ...

    1. Not yet. He hasn't been arrested in these incidents, only taken in for medical evaluation. His name is common, too, so finding old mugshots (if there are any) is a challenge.

    3. Again, he was not a prisoner and he was not arrested. He was taken in for a psychiatric evaluation for reasons that should be pretty clear.

    1. Not yet, although there was a late night complaint of homeless people playing guitar and signing behind the McDonald's down that way. We immediately thought of the rocker.
