Charges for Two Assailants
- A man who was shot by an off-duty Chicago police officer after attacking the officer with a bat as well as a 17-year-old boy the officer had stopped on the street have both been charged with attacking the officer, police said Monday.
Anthony Castaneda, 32, is charged with felony aggravated battery of an officer and aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, and the 17-year-old is cited as a juvenile with misdemeanor assault of an officer and misdemeanor marijuana possession, according to a police news release. Castaneda hit the officer with a baseball bat about 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 2600 block of North Monitor Avenue after the officer, who was off-duty, stopped the boy — a relative of Castaneda's — on the street, police said in a news release Sunday.
[...] Castaneda is on parole in a 2007 kidnapping case, according to state and court records. In that incident, he kidnapped someone from a home in the 4900 block of West Nelson Street about 4 a.m., according to police records. He was sentenced to at least nine years in prison after pleading guilty in the case, according to court records.
Nice job to all the investigators putting this one together quickly.
