CHICAGO (STMW) — A North Side man was ordered held on $500,000 bond Monday for allegedly jumping out of a bathroom stall and stabbing a man in the neck early Sunday at a Wrigleyville bar.

Gregg Greaves, 23, of the 4700 block of North Beacon Street, was charged with one count of felony aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, police said.

On Monday, Greaves was ordered held on $500,000 bond, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office. He will be back in court Dec. 17.

Officers responded about 12:30 a.m. Sunday to the Red Ivy sports bar in the 3500 block of North Clark Street, police said.

The suspect jumped out of a bathroom stall and stabbed a man in the neck with a broken beer bottle, police said. The victim was also cut in the chin, hands and neck while fighting off Greaves.

Another man, who walked into the bathroom and saw the attack, helped subdue Greaves until officers arrived, police said.

The man was treated and released from Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said.

The suspect allegedly refused to wear pants and screamed obscenities at officers, police said. While being processed at the police station, the man defecated into his hands and flung the fecal matter onto the floor.
