(BLOOMINGTON) - After being arrested on preliminary charges of residential entry and intimidation, a 36-year-old Bloomington man briefly broke free from police Sunday and is being held in Monroe County Jail for resisting arrest and attempting to flee.

Police were called to the 1600 block of North Willis Drive at 10:06 a.m., when a woman said she was being harassed by Matthew Jason Wilbur, who entered her trailer looking for his roommate, the woman's daughter.

According to police, he was beating on her trailer window with a stick, yelling at her and threatening her if she were to call for help.

According to Detective John Kovach, Wilbur was upset after getting into a fight with his brother before this incident.

After harassing the woman, Wilbur returned to his residence before police arrived to the scene, but he allowed officers into his home and admitted to entering the woman's property without her permission; he was also discovered to be intoxicated.

When police tried to arrest Wilbur, he struggled, bruising an officer's knee. Once in handcuffs, he struggled again, this time breaking free and attempting to run away, police said.

Booked into jail Sunday, his bond was set at $10,000 surety, $500 cash.
