Arlington Heights police responded about 3:31 PM Monday to a report of a battery, just north of McDonald’s, 1920 North Arlington Heights Road Arlington Heights, IL. Police received a report that a male was striking a female in the parking lot in front of T-Mobile on North Arlington Heights Road near Rand Road. Police were updated that the disturbance had moved toward the McDonald’s lot.

As police arrived they saw a male/white subject injured face-down, and immediately called for paramedics. Police also called for paramedics to expedite because the male victim appeared seriously injured, and was vomiting while lying face down.

On the scene police received a report that a male/white was struck by a female and the female/white was struck by the male.

Next, police learned that a large male/black subject, about 6’4″ 250 LBS, approached the male/white subject from behind, picked up the male/white subject, and allegedly body-slammed him head first onto the asphalt parking lot. The male/black subject then fled the scene southeast on Rand Road in a green Ford Mustang. Police searched Rand Road, but did not find the suspect.

The female, apparently in a relationship with the male/black subject, was not seriously injured, and telephoned the male/black subject identified as Donavan J. Williams, 23, of Indianapolis. Williams then turned himself in at Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters by 4:45 p.m. Monday.

Two witnesses picked Williams out of a police lineup, and Donavan J. Williams was charged with aggravated battery resulting in great bodily harm. Bail was set at $100,000. Court date is May 17, 2013 at Rolling Meadows Cook County Court House.

The male/white victim was transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital by Arlington Heights Fire Department firefighter/paramedics. The man suffered a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, and a broken toe. His treatment included three days in the Intensive Care Unit at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital.
