Perps Attack Older Man, Then He Pulls Out His Gun
A victim pulls out his handgun to ward off two attackers near Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.
The video, filmed from inside McDonald’s at 10 East Chicago, shows two males attacking a middle-aged man who appears to be a security guard. The man is slammed against the restaurant’s outside wall by the pair who punch and grapple with the older man as he works to free himself.
Within moments, one of the two apparent attackers picks up an object that appears to be a pepper spray canister while the armed man continues to struggle with the other person.
A spokesman for nearby Loyola University stated that the armed man is not affiliated with the school’s police department, as rumored on social media. A Chicago police spokesman said no report had been filed in connection with the incident.
CWBChicago reported this morning that police had confirmed the arrests of 21 people on Saturday afternoon in the River North and Magnificent Mile neighborhoods during the first “mob” activity of 2019. The high arrest count is the result of a new, less-tolerant approach by police assigned to handle “large group” incidents in the downtown area.
