A Humboldt Park woman has been charged with hitting a 16-year-old girl in the forehead with a hammer in a dispute over who would be served next at a downtown McDonald’s, according to police and a source. Court records show the woman was charged last month with throwing a coffee table at a man on the West Side.

Hannah J. Walker, 36, was arrested around 9:30 last night after police responded to calls of a melee involving “mops and a hammer” inside the restaurant at 10 East Chicago. Witnesses reported seeing bystanders recording the brawl before police arrived.

The victim told police she lined up to order and saw Walker arguing with another customer in the restaurant. Walker allegedly then approached the victim and insisted that she would be served next. When the teen disagreed, Walker pulled the hammer from her purse and started swinging, the victim said.

Walker is charged with misdemeanor battery.

The victim was treated at Comer Children’s Hospital and released.

On May 28, Walker was charged with battery and criminal damage to property after she allegedly threw water at a woman and tossed a coffee table at a man during a dispute over a boyfriend, according to court records. The charges were dropped last Monday when the victims failed to show up in court.

But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets.
