OVERNIGHT: A Case of the "Mondays"

A “homeless person” brandished a knife and threatened a man at Halsted and Roscoe. The assailant, described as male, black, 5’10” tall, 210 pounds, wearing a white shirt and jeans, was last seen walking near Cornelia and Elaine Place.

Police handled a verbal altercation at Belmont and Halsted. An I.D. check of one participant revealed that he is:

-A prior parolee
-A member of the Traveling Vice Lords
-Flagged as being violent toward law enforcement

But, he was not wanted today, so he was sent on his way.

A strong police response brought a fight involving 10 people under control on the Belmont Red Line station’s southbound platform. One highly combative man was taken into custody on a domestic battery charge. Case #HW423962
