A man randomly attacked six people, including WLS-Ch. 7 news anchor Cheryl Burton, on Loop streets Wednesday evening, Chicago police said.I really hope there is an update and that we may be able to know what set this man off. Of course for things like this to happen it doesn't take much to set an unbalanced person off.
The first attack occurred just after 7 p.m. outside the Cook County Administration Building, 69 W. Washington St., police said.
The man, in his late-20s, attacked a woman on the street, punched her in the face and shoved her to the ground, police said. He then ran down Washington Street to Dearborn Street and attacked several more people as he went.
Six people -- including four women and two men -- were hurt before police, with the help of witnesses and a security guard, found the suspect and took him into custody. The victims included a 75-year-old woman and two men ages 74 and 71, police said. The WLS-Ch. 7 Web site reported that Burton was one of the victims.
