In the first attack, a male victim, described as a white man, was punched in the face by a black offender for apparently no reason.
The victim was attacked at 30 West Chicago Avenue, near Chicago Avenue and State Street, on the city’s Near North Side, around 9:52 p.m., said police.
A black man in his 40s or 50s approached the victim, who was walking with his girlfriend, and hit the victim in the face, according to eyewitnesses.
The people who saw the attack said the violence was unprovoked, said police.
After the assault, the offender ran into the CTA, Chicago, Red Line station at 800 North State Street.
Investigators said the assailant is approximately 5’7” and has a mustache. He was last seen wearing a dark green shirt and khaki pants.
The attack at Chicago and State wasn't the only seemingly random and racially motivated beating reported in the area.
At 10:14 p.m., a third party 911 caller reported three black males beating and chasing a white male near 200 North State Street.
One offender was wearing a gray t-shirt, another suspect was wearing a white shirt, and the third offender was shirtless, according to police dispatch reports.
At the time of this report, it was unclear if police made contact with the alleged victim or the offenders.
About 10 minutes later and several blocks south on State Street, another white male victim was beaten at South State Street and West Congress Parkway.
Three black males attacked the victim, but the victim refused medical attention, said police.
According to the last update, police were touring the area with the battery victim.
