Man in­sti­tu­tion­al­ized for stalk­ing Mila Ku­nis flees

The China Post - - ARTS - BY RAQUEL MARIA DIL­LON

A man sen­tenced for stalk­ing actress Mila Ku­nis es­caped from a men­tal health fa­cil­ity over the week­end and was be­ing sought by au­thor­i­ties in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia on Mon­day.

Stu­art Lynn Dunn dis­ap­peared around 7:30 p.m. Satur­day from the Olive Vista Be­hav­ioral Health Cen­ter in Pomona, said Deputy Chief Reaver Bing­ham of the Los An­ge­les County Pro­ba­tion Depart­ment.

Dunn climbed out a small win­dow of a bath­room and then scaled a barbed-wire fence.

“He went in to take a shower, and when he didn’t come out they went in to check on him,” Bing­ham said.

Law en­force­ment au­thor­i­ties were ac­tively search­ing for him, but he had no known lo­cal con­tacts and there were no leads, Bing­ham said.

“We’re treat­ing him as danger­ous,” he said. “We never know the state of mind of an in­di­vid­ual. He does have a fix­a­tion on the orig­i­nal vic­tim, so that’s why.”

Ku­nis was per­son­ally no­ti­fied of the es­cape, he said.

Asked if she was be­ing given pro­tec­tion, Bing­ham said there is a law en­force­ment pro­to­col for such sit­u­a­tions but he was not at lib­erty to dis­cuss it. He did not know what pri­vate mea­sures she may have taken.
