CLINTON — A Clinton man who police say held two Jewel-Osco employees hostage on Sunday faces four felony charges and will make his first court appearance today.

Patrick Guynn, 22, was released from Mercy North Hospital on Monday, and was arrested and transported to the Clinton County Jail. He faces two second-degree kidnapping charges (Class B felonies), intimidation with a dangerous weapon (Class C felony) and a second-degree criminal mischief charge (Class D felony).

He appeared in court at 9 a.m. today. He is being held on $250,000 bond.

Police say Guynn held Melissa Quick, 19, and Zachary Lamp, 19, hostage at the Jewel-Osco grocery store Sunday. Guynn released Lamp at approximately 9:10 p.m., almost three hours after Guynn entered the store with a high-powered rifle. Quick was released about 30 minutes later, while Guynn surrendered.

Clinton Police Capt. Mike Gertson said Quick is Guynn’s ex-girlfriend. Originally, Gertson said, Guynn entered the store at 3:30 p.m., but authorities do not yet know what Guynn did between that time and when he re-entered the store at 6:30 p.m. with an AR-15.
