Video shows large disturbance on Chicago’s Northwest Side;

Crowds loaded streets in Portage Park’s Six Corners early Sunday

CHICAGO — A police officer was hurt although confronting a crowd in the city’s Portage Park community early Sunday.

Cellphone video taken by Chris Olenik confirmed crowds resulting in disturbances in the Six Corners intersection of Irving Park Road, Milwaukee Avenue and North Cicero Avenue. In the movie, individuals are witnessed climbing on a squad treatment even though other folks kick and hit it.

“I woke up to the sound of screeching tires and loud engines revving,” Olenik explained.  

Olenik stated it stopped currently being trivial when he noticed people today attacking the law enforcement officers.

“That truly scared me. Specifically when you see the squad vehicle heading in reverse and they are opening up the doors,” she reported. “And they are seeking to yank the doorway (and) on the hood punching the windshield.”

Chicago police stated an officer was wounded when a group attacked a squad vehicle around 2:30 a.m. The officer was taken to the healthcare facility for minimal accidents.

Police reported someone threw an item at the motor vehicle and the windshield was shattered.

Olenik mentioned he would like to see repercussions with these involved and stated they’re taking their definition of fun too much.

“A great deal of the criminals are not getting to encounter any of the repercussions and I imagine observing that movie demonstrates,” she reported.

She said she believes the rowdy behavior and hostility toward police is unjustifiable and hopes CPD can get much more sources to manage these style of scenarios.

“Especially seeing what when on last night time, there is no achievable way that any individual coming from a legislation enforcement history could probably truly feel like their beloved ones are safe when they go away their dwelling to go to their task,” she said.

At this time no one particular is custody.
