Police arrested a man after he allegedly attacked a 35-year-old victim, causing severe injuries, at a bar in Harvard, authorities said.
Raul B. Hernandez, 34, of the 3000 block of Wakefield Drive in Carpentersville, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony.
The Harvard Police Department and Harvard Fire Protection District responded around 12:55 a.m. September 3 to the Hub Lounge, 15 North Ayer Street.
Officers observed a disturbance at the Hub Lounge and began investigating, according to Harvard Deputy Police Chief Tyson Bauman.
Officers located a 35-year-old Harvard man who had been struck in the face several times, causing severe injuries.
Bauman said that paramedics transported the victim to Mercy Hospital in Harvard and he was subsequently transferred to Javon Bea Hospital in Rockford for further treatment.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court alleges that Hernandez struck the victim in the face and head with his fist.
The victim suffered broken bones in his face and had at least nine lacerations to his face, the complaint said.
Police did not say what led to the attack. Hernandez was arrested approximately two hours later by officers.
Hernandez was released from the McHenry County jail after posting 10% of his $15,000 bond.
