— A Janesville man was hospitalized and faces misdemeanor charges after he ran through two residences Sunday on the city’s east side, crashing through at least one glass window and seriously injuring himself, police said.

Janesville Police Lt. Keith Lawver said a man identified as 26-year-old Janesville resident Cory Eubanks told police that he was being chased when they found him injured and sitting in the driveway of a residence in the vicinity of South Garfield Avenue and Carrington Street shortly after 3 p.m. on Sunday.


Police had been responding to multiple reports from residents that a man had run through two residences at the 700 block of South Garfield Avenue and the 1000 block of Carrington Street, doing damage to the homes and breaking out least one glass window, Lawver said.


Lawver said when police found Eubanks, they “attempted to calm him down.” He reportedly had serious injuries to his arm and cuts all over his body.


He was later transported to Mercy Hospital, where he was listed in good condition late Sunday.


Lawver said police were still trying to piece together information, but that it appeared that no one besides Eubanks was injured in the incident. He said police have found no evidence to support Eubanks’ claim that he was being chased.


Eubanks was arrested on misdemeanor charges including two counts of criminal trespass to property, two counts of criminal damage to property, and two counts of disorderly conduct.


Police could not supply Eubanks’ address late Sunday, and it was not clear whether other charges were pending.
