FISTICUFFS: 1 Arrested After Halsted Street Melee

Several callers reported a crowd of 15 spectators watching a 5-person fistfight on the corner of Halsted and Buckingham at 12:15 this morning.

Officers arrived quickly, but the fight was over when they rolled up. A victim who had been punched in the face remained on-scene. They searched the area with the victim in an effort to find the offender, described as male, black, 6'2", wearing a white hat, white shirt, and white shorts.

The man was found and taken into custody at 1:40AM outside of Sinbad's restaurant, 921 W. Belmont, near the Red Line station.

Chicago Police Department case #HW426849

UPDATE 4 MARCH 2014: The criminal case was dropped after the victim failed to appear in court.

    Why do you say "male, black" instead of "black male"? Shouldn't the adjective come before the noun? Thanks for your time!

    All of our descriptions are published exactly as they are issued by the Chicago Police Department. This applies across all races.

    The format of sex/race/age/followed by further details is standard.

    As an example, we would refer you to the community alert that was issued for armed robbers in Lake View this week.

    The alert is available on Alderman Tom Tunney's web site.
