A medical 911 call netted a bleeding burglary suspect Sunday morning in Superior.
Bradley James Kane, 27, of Superior made his initial appearance in Douglas County Circuit Court on Monday to face one count of felony burglary and one count of resisting an officer. He is currently being held at the Douglas County Jail on a parole hold.
According to the criminal complaint, Kane was arrested after emergency medical personnel were called to his hotel to deal with uncontrollable bleeding from his wrist.
Police responded to a burglary call at about 5 a.m. The window of the John Avenue residence had been broken — apparently with a brick — and blood was splattered and smeared on the window, floor and wall of the room, the complaint stated.
An hour later, police responded to the Superior hotel. A woman who was with Kane told police they had been at an apartment earlier and they returned there so Kane could pick up a DVD player he said he left at the residence. He returned to the car carrying something with a pillowcase over it, she told officers. There was blood on the pillowcase and Kane was dripping blood when they got to the hotel, according to the criminal complaint.
Officers found a CD holder and cell phone in a garbage can outside Kane’s hotel room, according to the criminal complaint. They also found many blood-soaked towels, rags and cloths in a hotel dumpster along with a purse that was reported stolen from the apartment, the complaint stated.
Kane was treated at St. Mary’s Hospital of Superior and released to police custody.
