Pope Francis' popemobile passes thousands of people along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway as he arrives at the Festival of Families, September 26, 2015.

A log of security threats made during the Pope Francis' weekend visit to Philadelphia in late September includes a report of an "emotionally disturbed man" who made threatening comments, was "involuntarily committed, and later escaped custody," according to a Washington, D.C.-based television reporter.

NBC4 reporter Scott MacFarlane also reported via Twitter that the man, who was not identified, had a criminal history that includes theft, simple assault and drugs.

The log of threats obtained by MacFarlane through a Freedom of Information Act request, also includes a report of a man, already on security watch list, who "breached security" while carrying a knife.

A Secret Service spokesman said Friday he need to research the incidents before commenting.
