A 21-year-old man was charged with battery after he fought a woman Friday morning in a 7-Eleven parking lot in west suburban Riverside.

Christian M. Hernandez, of the 4200 block of South Oak Park Avenue in Stickney, was charged with one count of domestic battery, according to a statement from the Riverside Police Department.

At 10:36 a.m., police responded to a disturbance at 7-Eleven, 2600 Harlem Ave., where they saw a 21-year-old woman crying and attempting to put distance between her and Hernandez, police said.

Officers learned that the woman and Hernandez were in a car with friends on their way to take the woman to a drug rehabilitation center when the two began fighting about drug use and paying for the rehabilitation treatment. The driver stopped at the 7-Eleven and called police as the fight continued, police said.

The woman was treated at the scene for bruises and scalp injuries after patches of her hair were pulled out during the fight. She refused transportation to a hospital, police said.
