BELMONT BEATINGS: A Saturday Sampler Pack

Here's a little taste of this morning's Belmont Avenue fight activity:

1:38AM: An employee of the Clark and Belmont Starbucks reported that a man was getting beat up across the street. The victim refused medical treatment.

4:07AM: Officers responded calls of a man being beaten at the corner of Belmont and Sheffield by a group of men dressed as women. Arriving officers ordered an ambulance for the victim, who was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment. Case #HW309472

5:22AM: Old reliable, the Subway restaurant at 901 W. Belmont,  put a pretty pink bow on top of this delightful morning. A customer there called 911 to report that her sister's boyfriend was beating the woman in front of her children. The attacker, reportedly armed with a knife, was described as male, black, and wearing a red and black hat, red shirt, gray jacket, blue jeans, and red shoes. His name may be "James." Police arrived a whopping 9 minutes later and reported "nothing going on."
