Wrigleyville Bar Stabbing: Victim Looked 'Like Friday The 13th' After Pub Crawl Attack

Jumping out of a bathroom stall and stabbing a fellow bar patron was--unbelievably--just one of the bizarre behaviors exhibited by a suspect Chicago police arrested Sunday.

Police responded to the Red Ivy sports bar in the 3500 block of North Clark Street in Wrigleyville at 12:26 a.m. Sunday morning, reports the Tribune. The suspect had allegedly jumped out of a bathroom stall and stabbed a man in the neck with a broken beer bottle.

After police hauled the 23-year-old suspect to jail, the Sun-Times reports the man allegedly refused to wear pants and "screamed obscenities at officers." According to the police report, the suspect topped his outrageous behavior when he "defecated into his hands and flung the fecal matter onto the floor" while being processed at the police station. Charges are pending.

Robert Davis, the security manager of Red Ivy, told DNAinfo Chicago he suspected drugs may have contributed to the attacker's behavior, saying he appeared to be "under the influence of more than alcohol."

Describing the scene in DNAinfo, Davis said the victim was so bloody, he looked "like Friday the 13th," referencing the popular slasher movie. The victim reportedly suppressed the bleeding with dry napkins until paramedics came to take him to Illinois Masonic Medical Center where he was treated and released.

Gregg Greaves, 23, was charged with felony aggravated battery and bodily harm in the incident, NBC Chicago reports.

The men involved in the stabbing were, according to DNAinfo, wearing "ugly Christmas sweaters and Santa hats" at the time of the incident. Red Ivy and dozens of other Wrigleyville bars played host to the daylong "TBOX," a holiday-themed pub crawl event that stands for "The Twelve Bars Of Christmas" and stretched into the evening hours Saturday.

CORRECTION: Though the men involved in the incident were wearing holiday gear consistent with the pub crawl attendees, it has not been confirmed whether they were participants in the event.
