ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford man is on the run and may try coming back to Rockford after police in the Chicago suburbs say he nearly killed his ex-wife, stabbing her multiple times in a parking lot.
Police in Harwood Heights, near O’Hare, say Ryan Paladino, 38 stabbed his ex-wife five times. He's now wanted for aggravated battery.
Police say Paladino may try hiding out in Rockford because he grew up here and his family still lives in the area. Rockford police are aware of the situation but say they have no reason to believe Paladino is actually here.
Harwood Heights Police say Paladino should be considered armed and dangerous, and could also be suicidal.
