Several residents in the 800 block of W. Newport Avenue reported a large group of “teenagers” fighting in the alleys behind Newport, Cornelia, and Halsted at 10:40 last night.
The first officers on scene immediately called for back up after they rolled into a large fight behind Batteries Not Included, 3420 N. Halsted. At least a dozen officers responded to bring the situation under control.
One 22 year-old was taken into custody for battery after being treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center for a busted lip that he suffered in the melee.
The victim is from the East Garfield Park neighborhood on Chicago’s West Side.
