A 14-year-old boy in the city’s Edgewater neighborhood was beaten and critically injured Wednesday night–suffering massive head trauma, police said.
A witness told police they saw the victim being chased by three males about 7:45 p.m. on the 6300 block of North Paulina Street, Chicago Police Lt. Paul Kusinski said.
After the three assailants caught up with the victim, all three beat him, and one reportedly struck him over the head using some type of “shiny” object, Kusinski said.
An Edgewater woman who wished to remain anonymous said she was driving home from work and looking for a parking space when she saw the teen lying in the road.
“He was covered in blood. Blood was all over the street. It was all over his face, arms, and coming from the back of his head. Two little girls and another kid were with him, holding him down. I called 911, and the police arrived shortly.
