CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer was hit on his head with a vase while responding to a domestic battery call in Woodlawn early Wednesday.
Officers were in the 6400 block of South Kenwood Avenue shortly after midnight when they saw a woman, the domestic battery victim, on the street, according to the Chicago Police Department.
The women led officers into a nearby apartment, where a man opened the door. One officer entered the unit, police said. Before other officers could enter, the man closed the door and struck the first officer on his head with a vase. The man then fled through the back door.
A suspect was in custody Wednesday morning.
The officer's condition had stabilized early Wednesday, police said.
