Heinous Battery Arrest
With help from a surveillance tape and Cicero police officers, Chicago Police nabbed a 16-year-old girl for robbing and throwing acid on a Logan Square woman last month.
The teenage girl, who did not act alone, was charged as a juvenile with armed robbery and heinous battery for the July 28 incident, police announced Sunday. The girl had thrown a caustic liquid at 48-year-old Esperanza Medina as she left her home on her way to work.
"She has given a statement implicating herself and another juvenile offender," said Grand Central Area Detective Commander Joseph Salemme.
