A victim suffered injuries and was transported to the hospital after a man rear-ended the victim’s vehicle and attacked him in Park City, prosecutors said.
Cordell K. Holley-Bass, 25, of Park City, was initially charged with battery and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
He was later charged this month with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, a Class 3 felony.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Dino Katris said a road rage incident occurred at Teske Boulevard and Howard Avenue in Park City on March 22.
The victim was driving in a vehicle when Holley-Bass rear-ended the victim’s truck, Katris said.
Katris said Holley-Bass grabbed the victim by the shirt and began to punch him in the head with a closed fist.
Holley-Bass then threw the victim to the ground, Katris said.
Gurnee Fire Department paramedics transported the male victim to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
The victim was treated for a broken nose and received eight stitches to his head.
Prosecutors did not say what may have provoked the attack on the victim.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak allowed Holley-Bass to be released on a personal recognizance bond during a bond hearing last week.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 25.
