CHICAGO (CBS) — Two people, including an off-duty Chicago police officer, were taken to the hospital after they were involved in a fight with three strangers after leaving a nightclub in the River North neighborhood.

Police said two off-duty officers and a female companion were walking near LaSalle and Hubbard around 2 a.m., when they were approached by three strangers, and got involved with a fight.

One of the off-duty officers, a 32-year-old man, suffered injuries to his face. He was treated and released at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said. The other off-duty officer, a 25-year-old man, was not injured.
