POST-PARADE ATTACK: Jaw Wired Shut For 2 Weeks, But Surgery Successful

UPDATE DECEMBER 13, 2015: The photo that formerly accompanied this story has been removed at the victim's request.
A Chicago man whose jaw was broken in at least two places after he got hit in the face with a brick following Sunday's Pride Parade is in good spirits after undergoing reconstructive surgery.

"The surgery went well! Jaw wired for two weeks, and hopefully a full recovery shortly after that," reads a new post on a support site that the man's friends set up to raise his spirits.

According to a friend of the victim, an unknown offender struck the victim with a brick near Newport and Sheffield after Sunday's parade. The suspect fled in a taxi cab.
