Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 7:12 AM Saturday to a report of fight with an injured person at the Speedway gas station Arlington Heights Road and Palatine Road, Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that about 7 or 8 males were fighting in the area of the Speedway at Arlington Heights Road and Palatine Road.
Arlington Heights responded with about six or seven police squad cars. One injured gang member was bleeding significantly from the head and face. During the disturbance, the injured victim entered the convenience store at the gas station apparently to warm up. While inside, he was swearing at police officers.
One victim was transported to Northwest Community Hospital. One person was handcuffed, but at this time, it is unknown if anyone was arrested.
Possibly one of the offenders that did most of the battering fled the scene before police arrived.
