    Police Officer Attacked By 3 Teens At Gas Station

    CHICAGO (STNG) -- Three teenagers are were in custody Tuesday afternoon after they injured a Chicago Police officer at an Englewood gas station.

    The uniformed Englewood District officer pulled over after spotting three teens. They appeared to be of school age, and the officer planned to investigate possible truancy when he saw them about 9:55 a.m. Tuesday morning at a gas station near Halsted Street and Marquette Road, according to Englewood District Lt. Robert Duewerth.

    The teens, ages 17 and 18, apparently figured it was three against one and jumped the officer, Duewerth said.

    A 10-1 call for emergency assistance to an officer was dispatched when several customers at the gas station saw the assault.

    They had the officer pinned on the ground, Duewerth said.

    The officer suffered minor injuries and the three teens were arrested. Charges are expected against at least one of the teenagers later Tuesday, Duewerth said.

    Police have not yet confirmed if the teens were enrolled in high school.

    WTF? Cop goes to talk to teens and they all decide to jump him? Not to mention sadly he was pinned down by them. Glad they didn't get his weapon and hopefully he is ok.

    Anyone have any other details? Was said officer "out of shape"? Just scary to be pinned by 3 people and then at thier mercy.

    Stay safe!
