Man Charged With Throwing Concrete at Police Station

The concrete chunks reportedly did not break the window

Police charged a Chicago man Friday with throwing a piece of concrete at a window of the 16th District police station in Jefferson Park Thursday night.

Andrzej K. Borowiec, 38, was charged with three counts of aggravated battery to a police officer, one count of criminal damage to government property and one count of misdemeanor and resisting arrest, according to Chicago Police News Affairs.

Borowiec entered the police station at 8:15 p.m. and said, "If the government wrecked my place then I will wreck yours," police told the Chicago Tribune. He then grabbed the concrete from under his jacket and threw it at a window.

Police said Borowiec also hit an officer three times in the face and resisted arrest, according to the Tribune. Three officers in total were treated for injuries and released from Resurrection Medical Center for minor injuries.

The concrete chunks did not break the window, according to local reports, and police are unsure what prompted the incident.
