Police are saying a group of black teens committed a hate crime against two white people near Tecumseh Park on June 25 around 9:15 p.m.
Officers originally responded to a battery complaint in the 4800 block of Louise Avenue on June 25 around 9:15 p.m. Police found a man who said he was just attacked by three teens while walking to his car, the report said. He added that he was having a difficult time remembering the details of the attack. His girlfriend, however, told police the alleged suspects began yelling and following them on their bicycles. The woman added the group was saying things like, "F*** you b****" and "What are you looking at white man," the report said.
The three suspects then allegedly hit the man on the left side of his head and kicked him in his back when he fell to the ground, the report said. They then fled toward the CTA Oakton Stop on their bicycles, according to the report. Police did a nearby canvas of the area but were unable to locate the alleged suspects.
