A northwest suburban man in his 60's was found walking near Grant Park early Saturday bloody and beaten, after he'd been sodomized with a tree branch in a brutal attack that's still under investigation.
Shortly after midnight Saturday, someone saw the half-naked man walking with a bloody face in the 800 block of South Michigan and called authorities, according to Central District Police Lt. Richard Guerrero.
The victim had severe trauma to his face when paramedics got to the scene. Some of his teeth were knocked out, and he was partially impaled by a tree branch, his injures are not life-threatening. The victim had apparently been beaten and sodomized with a tree branch,
and doctors at Northwestern Memorial Hospital had to remove part of the
branch from the victim's body. He was not wearing shoes or pants, and had only one sock on. He was earlier believed to be homeless, but as detectives investigated, police News Affairs Officer Michael Fitzpatrick said, they found out that he is from the northwest suburbs.
Police arrested a 45-year-old man who was paroled last May after his third prison sentence for armed robbery; so far, he hasn't been charged in the weekend attack.
While his condition was not known, his injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, police said.
I think I'm officially speechless... wow!
