Thank you to the caring Mt Greenwood neighbors who helped my son tonight! Because of you he is ok. He was riding his bike home from St Catherine's Fest down 107th st. 3 guys ran up behind him. One punched him in the head and knocked him off his bike. A lady driving by saw what was happening and called 911 right away. Neighbors who were in their back yard heard the commotion and came running outside. This caused the attackers to run. One neighbor even jumped in his personal vehicle and tried to catch the guys. The police came very quickly. Thank you 22nd district police!
The guys unfortunately got away. Since it was dark outside and they approached him from behind my son was only able to give the description that there were 3 of them 2 with dreads and one with short hair wearing baggy jeans. My son got a bad cut over his eye and a cut inside his mouth. But because of the quick intervention of these wonderful neighbors he was not hurt worse and his bike and his phone were not stolen. Words cannot express how grateful my family is to these neighbors. Thank you for getting involved!
Reminder to all 19th Ward residents. Stay vigilant. Call 911 when you see anything that is not typical.
