A Chicago police officer was hurt after an object thrown at a marked SUV caused the windshield to shatter early Sunday in Portage Park on the Northwest Side.
The officer was driving the marked patrol vehicle in the 4000 block of North Milwaukee Avenue about 2:30 a.m. when a thrown object hit the SUV’s windshield, causing it to shatter, police said.
Several people approached the vehicle and one began kicking a headlight as the officer called for more units, officials said.
He was taken to an area hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries and released, police said.
No one was in custody.
