BOYSTOWN: Charges Filed In July 31 Beating On Halsted

Update: All charges were dropped on September 18, 2014.
Charges have been filed against three women in connection with the July 31 beating of a man on Boystown's Halsted strip.

Facing various charges are Chenae L. Bingham, 22, Krystal K. Wolf, 20, and Shereya C. Moore, also 22. All three are free on $1,500 recognizance bonds.

Police statements in court filings allege that the 32-year-old victim was rendered unconscious with suspected brain hemorrhaging. He was intubated and placed on a respirator by doctors in the intensive care unit at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police say.

Not stated in the court documents is what, if anything, preceded the incident that took place just north of Halsted and Roscoe in the Gerber Automotive parking lot.

Moore, of the 16400 block of S. Honore in south suburban Markham, and Wolf, of the 5000 block of W. Wabansia, are each charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of simple battery.

Bingham, of the 100 block of N. Austin in Chicago’s South Austin neighborhood, is charged with two counts of simple battery, two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer, and one count of harassing a witness.

According to probable cause filings, Bingham is accused of “shout[ing] verbal threats to kill” a witness who identified the women to police. Officers further alleged that Bingham “continued the same verbal threats towards her arresting officers, stating that she would kill them.”

As of Monday afternoon, the three women were next due in court on August 22.

EDIT 12 Aug 2014: Corrected Moore's hometown to Markham from Harvey.

  1. why are they out on bond?

  2. How on earth did a Judge grant these offenders I - bonds and release them from custody? This is why Judges should not be elected.

    1. This is why citizens should pay attention to everyone they vote for rather than taking their Windy City Times in the voting booth. Voters are ultimately to blame for the losers put into office term after term after term.

  3. All 3 are free on I Bonds?? Are you fucking kidding me?

  4. I was busted for misdemeanor prostitution and my I-Bond was $500 but these little thugs get out for $1500? That's completely f*cked up.

  5. It might not be a bad idea come election time to post these judges' names with a description of the people they've put back on the street, and more often than not, back into our neighborhood.

  6. Their bond may be going up if the court filings are recent.

    1. That's correct, anonymous. The recognizance bond was issued the evening after the attack. These charges appear to have come along in the past few days.

  7. It sounds like the victim is not doing well. Where is the attempted murder charge?

  8. Note the addresses of all the offenders.

    So just exactly how and why did they wind up in Lakeview?

    Might have something to do with all the youth social service organizations here?
