A 37-year-old woman being beaten by her brother, Deandre Berry, 35, had her assault ended by her boyfriend when he punched her brother once in the head. The punch knocked Deandre Berry to the ground. He never regained consciousness. The sister’s boyfriend was also attacked during his effort to stop the brother’s attack inside a Linden Place apartment in the 700 block of East Golf Road. Deandre was asked to leave because of his wild behavior after a party ended about 3:00 a.m. He assaulted his sister and her boyfriend after he was asked to leave.

The couple thought the brother was unconscious from being intoxicated and left him on the front stoop for his girlfriend, who lives nearby, to come and pick him up. Another unidentified person saw Berry lying on the ground and called 9-1-1 about 3:15 a.m. Sunday before Deandre’s girlfriend arrived to pick him up. Berry was intoxicated, but he died of hemorrhaging near the brain and base of the skull. He was unconscious and not breathing when police arrived within minutes of the 9-1-1 call for help.

Arlington Heights Fire Department performed advanced lifesaving techniques on Berry, discovered some vital signs indicating he was still alive, and transported him to Northwest Community Hospital. He was pronounced dead shortly after he arrived at the hospital.

Deandre Berry’s latest address was in the 6100 block of Golfview Avenue in Gurnee. He has had former addresses in Detroit, Michigan, Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect.

The boyfriend was transported in custody to the Arlington Heights police station at about 3:45 a.m. The girlfriend was transported in a second police car, also at about 3:45 a.m. Another officer guarded the crime seen at the Linden Place apartment.

Arlington Heights police reviewed the case and testimony of those involved. After observing trauma indications on the sister’s body, and reviewing the case with the Illinois State’s Attorney’s office, Arlington Heights police released the sister and her boyfriend late Monday afternoon.
