Hooded, black-clad gang attacks Illinois restaurant patrons with hammers

18:31 | ,

Police said about 10 people were hurt Saturday when an armed mob clad in black hoods stormed an Illinois restaurant and attacked patrons with hammers and clubs. The frightening assault occurred about 12:45pm at the Ashford House restaurant in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, the Orland Park Patch reported. Between 15 and 18 people wearing black clothing and hoods burst into the restaurant and started attacking diners, according to police. They were targeting a specific group of diners, cops said. One restaurant employee also claimed to have been assaulted, and said the hooded gang painted an unclear message on a wall. Three people were hospitalized for their injuries, while the other victims refused treatment, according to the Patch. Another Ashford House employee said a woman with tattoos on both of her arms made reservations Friday for a party of 10 for 12:00pm Saturday. She said the group tours Irish festivals throughout the US. About 12:00pm, the unidentified employee said, a group of people who apparently did not know each other gathered outside the restaurant. "It all seemed strange to me from the beginning," the worker said. "They were doing introductions and pacing around the parking lot before coming in." Five people sat down to eat, followed by another 10. The assailants then entered and began assaulting diners and damaging the restaurant, according to the employee, who added that they had people waiting for them outside. Tinley Park Mayor Ed Zabrocki said five people who were believed to have been involved in the attack had been taken into custody, the Chicago Tribune reported.
