Police say a woman bit several people and punched a staff member at a bar in Libertyville after she reportedly tried leaving the establishment without paying.

The Libertyville Police Department responded around 11 p.m. February 4 to Morgan’s Bar and Grill, 532 North Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville, for a call of a battery that just occurred.

Officers arrived and spoke with the victims, which included several bar staff members and customers.

Bar staff members attempted to stop two subjects who were leaving the bar without paying their bill, according to a police report.

One of the subjects, identified as Christina Romero, 34, punched one of the staff members in the face when they asked Romero to pay her bill, the report said.

When other staff members and customers intervened, Romero allegedly bit several of them.
