It was a vicious attack and it was all caught on video. There was no gun involved. Ironically, it was a Taste of Park Ridge event in the local park.
Three Chicago teens viciously attacked a 48-year old man who, while looking for his son in a Chicago park, tried to find out who threw a lit firecracker near him.
Gonzalez and Piazza
A crowd gathered and began to verbally abuse him when Jordan Gonzalez, 18, Mac Piazza, 18, and a 16-year-old boy pushed the man to the ground and began beating, punching him and kicking him. The loud and raucous crowd cheered the teens on.
The man suffered a concussion among other injuries.
A teen stepped in to stop the attack. Police are looking for him to thank him. Only one person stepped in but at least one did.
Gonzalez is on probation from a prior conviction. All three are in Cook county jail.
