SOUNDS FAMILIAR: 2 Battered On Halsted, 1 Arrest

A battery in the 3300 block of N. Halsted? It seems like we reported something like that just yesterday. Maybe that's because we did.

Unlike yesterday's story, we're pleased to report that this morning's offender was taken into custody.

The incident was reported to 911 a 2 o'clock this morning by a man and his friend who were battered on the sidewalk at 3342 N. Halsted Street, just north of Town Hall Pub.

According to the victim, the offender was in a group of four black males, one of whom had dreads and wore a black shirt and tan shorts.

The offender and his three companions were kind enough to stay in the immediate area, which gave officers the opportunity to investigate and make an arrest.

Police made contact with the group a half-block away on the corner of Halsted and Buckingham.

One man was taken into custody at 2:12AM. The battery is recorded in Chicago Police Department case #HW439619.
