Charges are pending against a man accused of attacking two women near Navy Pier.
It happened just before 6:30 pm Tuesday.
The women, both 55-years-old, were walking on a path near the 500 block of north Lake Shore Drive, when police say the man hit both of them in the face with a hammer.
The man ran off, but he was eventually arrested.
Both women were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious condition.
