Police are now looking for a Homewood, Ill. man wanted in a disturbing attack on his mother.

Blake Springsteen, 22, allegedly beat his 46-year-old mother and bound her and put her into the trunk of a car before driving her to Crete, stabbing her multiple times and leaving her in a ditch, the Cook County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Springsteen's mother survived the alleged attack and is in stable condition at an area hospital, the Chicago Tribune reports.

As Patch notes, Springsteen is the same man the Cook County Sheriff's Office said they were searching for in Flossmoor on Monday.

A no-bond warrant for Springsteen's arrest was issued Wednesday and police are asking anyone with information to call the sheriff's office at 847-635-1188. The public is urged not to approach the fugitive, who is white, weighs 245 pounds and 6 feet tall with brown eyes. He is considered dangerous.
