CHICAGO — A suspect is in custody after three people were attacked with a baseball bat in Lincoln Park on Wednesday evening, Chicago police said.
Officers responded to calls of a man attacking people with an orange baseball bat at Oz Park, 2021 North Burling, around 5:25 p.m. They found a girl and a boy, both 17, who said a man walked up to them with a bat, hit them with it, and then ran away, according to a CPD spokesperson.
The attacker struck a 70-year-old man nearby before cops apprehended him.
“It was during Little League,” a witness told us. “Super f***ed up!”
Passersby tended to at least one of the victims until paramedics arrived. The police spokesperson said all three victims were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with cuts and bruises.
The suspect remains in custody with charges pending.
