Police only had a vague description of the attacker.
Oh, only a vague description? Really?
The 51-year-old clerk was behind the counter of the store when a man went into the store and asked the clerk if he had triple extra large sized tank top t-shirts, O’Brien said.
After the clerk told the man the store did not carry the item, the man pulled out a baseball bat and began beating the clerk, O’Brien said. After beating the clerk, the man fled with the bat.
Another merchant on the block said she saw the clerk run out after the man fled.
“He went out on the street to cry for help,’’ his body covered in blood, she said. “It was very unfortunate, very vicious.’’
The Tribune managed to find more than a vague description of the attacker.
The suspect is being described as black, between 23 and 30 years old, between 5 feet 8 inches tall and 6 feet tall and between 200 and 250 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair and a dark complexion and was last seen wearing a red bandanna and white tank top shirt, O’Brien said.
Vague, huh? On the upside, at least gun control must be working in Chicago now that the criminals are only armed with bats.
