Several 911 callers reported that a 14-year-old boy was beaten up outside of Nettlehorst around 7:15PM. A citizen who tried to detain the offender was threatened with a knife. That didn’t slow him down for long. The citizen continued his efforts to detain the offender and succeeded near the rear of the school.

Two case numbers: Simple battery on the teen in case HX284600; and aggravated assault with a knife in case HX286356. Both police reports say the incidents took place on a public area of the school grounds.

Another Random Beat-Down Near Sheridan Red Line

Another victim was randomly battered at Sheridan and Irving Park Friday evening. A restaurant worker was tossing out some trash when he got beat up by an apparently homelesss man. There has been no arrest. The offender is described as a 45-year-old white man with a full beard, tall, wearing a blue shirt with the letter “J” on the back.

This is not the same attacker who battered a senior citizen on a dog walk in that area Wednesday night.
