The Cook County Sheriff's Office announced Friday that the search for a 22 year old Homewood man suspected of severely beating and stabbing his mother earlier this week is over. Sheriff Thomas Dart reports Blake Springsteen was arrested without incident in Flossmoor, Illinois, Thursday night, by the Flossmorr Police Department, after receiving a tip he was in the area. Authorities report Springsteen is suspected of beating his mother in unincorporated Homewood, then he reportedly bound her, put her in the trunk of a car and drove to Crete, where he is accused of stabbing her multiple times, and leaving her in a ditch in the nine-hundred block of Columbia Street. The Sheriff's Office say at last check, the victim remains in stable condition.
