CHICAGO — Police say a burglary suspect was hospitalized on Sunday after he jumped from a third-story window while allegedly trying to flee from police in Hyde Park.
Officers say they were called to a building in the 1200 block of East 54th Street, just before 12:30 p.m., on reports that there was a suspicious person checking mailboxes and taking mail with a mailbox key.
Officers say they toured the area and eventually spotted a man inside a vestibule of the building.
According to police, the man allegedly fled from officers by running upstairs and forcing his way into a third-story apartment. Officers say the man then jumped from the window of the unit to the ground floor where he was then taken into custody.
Officers say the suspect suffered serious injuries and was transported to the hospital following his arrest.
Police say charges against the man are pending and an investigation continues.
