A car rolled up and someone apparently sprayed a fire extinguisher at a 69-year-old man as he walked to the Chicago Transit Authority Blue Line station at 711 Desplaines Ave. just after midnight on Saturday, Dec. 18.
A Forest Park Police Department report indicates that a light-colored sedan with heavily tinted windows approached the man as he walked in the 700 block of Desplaines and a young man in the vehicle sprayed him with “an unknown substance.” After the drive-by spraying, the occupants of the vehicle began to laugh and the car sped away.
The man who was sprayed was covered in a “white powder-like substance” that he believed came from a fire extinguisher. He refused medical treatment.
This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.
