Parolee arrested in Glenview after escaping from custody on South Side

GLENVIEW (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A man who escaped the custody of the state’s Department of Corrections Tuesday morning was later arrested in north suburban Glenview.

Kir Moorman, 29, was last seen about 10:30 a.m. during a compliance check in the 2700 block of East 81st Street, according to a Lindsey Hess, an IDOC spokeswoman, and Chicago Police.

A parole agent tried to restrain Moorman when he resisted and took off with one hand cuffed, Hess said. He was later arrested in Glenview. No injuries were reported.

Moorman was wanted on a parole violation, police said.

Hess said Moorman was being held by CPD, but a police spokesperson couldn’t confirm he was in the department’s custody.

Moorman was released on parole April 6 after being sentenced to seven years in prison for a 2014 armed robbery charge, IDOC records show. He has prior convictions for drug possession, burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
