Police were called to the Night Ministry’s weekly outreach mission at Halsted and Belmont last night after a fight broke out and 911 callers reported rocks being thrown and hitting passing vehicles.

Officers arrived on scene at 10:20PM and immediately reported seeing a fight in progress in the lot. After striking the victim, three offenders chased him into oncoming traffic, forcing drivers to swerve to avoid collisions.

In custody for battery are a 22-year-old man whose address is a church in Wicker Park and two 18-year-olds from the South Side’s Washington Heights neighborhood. CWB is withholding their names as charges are pending.

As of this morning, police had not received reports of damage to vehicles.

Rev. Barbara Bolsen, Vice President for Programs at Night Ministry, is away until late next week and could not be reached for comment today.
