Location: 3200 W. 26th St.
Officers chased O.G., a 17-year-old with autism, into his family’s restaurant, where they pushed his father to the ground and beat the young man in front of his parents. Police threatened the family when they asked officers to explain what had happened. The Independent Police Review Authority investigated the incident, but did not finish the investigation within the legal time limit even though the Guzman family gave extensive interviews to police within the required time frame. IPRA also refused to give the family the names of the officers involved.
