Video: Cops seek man who attacked Edgewater doorman

Police are trying to track down the man who battered a doorman at the Edgewater Beach Hotel Apartments, causing the victim to suffer a leg injury.

CPD released a video of the attack on Tuesday, but the incident happened on August 26, around 8:50 p.m.

Video shows the attacker entering the building and then tossing something onto the doorman’s desk as he continues to walk inside. The offender circles back and violently pushes the doorman, who slams to the floor. The doorman limps to his feet after suffering a serious leg injury.

Building staff did not recognize the attacker, so police are hoping the public will have information that leads detectives to make an arrest. Police said he is White and wore a black baseball cap with black pants and a blue shirt. He was last seen heading westbound from the building.

Anyone with information about the suspect can contact Detective Hendry at 312-744-8263 regarding case JD346379.
