Boy battered on Emerson Street

Susan Du

Evanston police officers on routine patrol observed a large group of juveniles loitering on the 1800 block of Emerson Street at approximately 10:33 p.m. Saturday. They were talking loudly and causing a disturbance, said Cmdr. Tom Guenther.

Upon the police’s arrival, all the juveniles fled except for one individual. That individual had visible indications of battery on his face, including a missing front tooth, two large bumps on his forehead as well as lacerations across his forehead and lips.

The boy was very incoherent as he told police he had been battered by several males, Guenther said.

He was transported to the hospital for medical treatment, and the case will be followed up by EPD juvenile investigations.
