CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago’s mayor and top cop are talking about how police handled unruly mobs downtown this past weekend, and what it might mean for visitors planning to come to the city this summer, reports WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore.
Police Supt. Garry McCarthy stresses that officers reacted quickly when mobs of teenagers started fighting in the Gold Coast area Saturday evening.
“We were there, we were on top of it and we dispersed it immediately. And I also want to be clear, that there were no assaults, robberies or property damage that was reported,” said McCarthy.
He says a group robbery on the CTA Red Line was unrelated and arrests quickly followed.
