Hoff Extends Olive Branch
An Alsip man was charged with a felony after attacking a Chicago Fire Department paramedic as they rode to a South Side Hospital, police said.
Mohamed Natour, 31, of the 4800 block of West 121st Place, was charged with one count of aggravated battery, a felony, said Chicago Police News Affairs [...].
Mike Nolan, who is a nine-year department veteran, suffered head, facial and leg injuries injuries in the attack that occurred following a traffic accident at the intersection of 76th Street and Racine Avenue this morning, police and fire officials said.
Fire Commissioner Robert Hoff credited police for acting quickly to subdue Natour.
“I would like to personally thank the many Chicago Police officers who quickly came to the aid of Paramedic Nolan," said Hoff, in a statement. "Their rapid response stopped a further escalation of the incident which could have resulted in more injury to Nolan and hospital staff at Holy Cross.”
