BURNHAM, Ill. (STMW) – A man being held in police custody was among three people injured early Sunday during a fight in a bar in south suburban Burnham.

A fight occurred at 3:09 a.m. at the Tally Ho, located at 3000 E. 138th Pl. where a 24-year-old Chicago man was stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle, Burnham Police Chief Peter Belos said.

The same man was an occupant in a vehicle that struck two women outside the bar, Belos said. It is unclear whether he was the driver or a passenger in the vehicle.

The man was treated and released from Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for the stab wound to his neck, Belos said.

He is currently in police custody, Belos said.

A 30-year-old Chicago woman was admitted to Christ with non-life threatening injuries while a 19-year-old Chicago woman was treated and released from the same hospital, Belos said.

The bar had recently reopened within the past few weeks, Belos said.
