Five Indiana Men Indicted in Attack at Tinley Park Restaurant
Five Indiana men charged in a mob attack at a Tinley Park restaurant last month appeared in court this morning, each with a private attorney by their side, at least four of whom said they are taking the cases for free.
During a hearing in Bridgeview, a Cook County assistant state’s attorney said a grand jury returned an indictment for the men. Each defendant faces 37 felony counts including armed violence, aggravated battery, property damage and mob action, records show.
They are alleged to have been among an estimated 18 masked attackers who entered the Ashford House restaurant about 12:30 p.m. May 19. The attackers were dressed in black and wielding batons and hammers, targeting a meeting they believed was organized by white supremacists, prosecutors have said.
