Arlington Heights police received a report about 10:50 p.m. Wednesday of a suspicious incident at Lake Arlington, 1400 East Valley Lane. Police received a report that a man called a woman ‘names’, acted strangely, grabbed her feet and then ran into the woods in the northeast sector of Lake Arlington. In the woods he was yelling ‘Adrian!’ and pounding his fists.

The suspect was described as a male/white, age 20-25, 5’9″ 185 LBS, with a buzz cut and a European accent. He was also reported to be wearing a white T-shirt and dark shorts. The suspect also stated to witnesses that he is Rocky Balboa.

The suspect may have been apprehended at another incident Thursday morning in the parking lot of Lake Arlington, but whether the suspects in the two cases are one in the same, has not been confirmed.
