An Orland Park man allegedly attacked an elderly man who intervened when he was behaving aggressively toward a female patron at New Image Lounge in Frankfort, police said.
About 7:15 p.m. Dec. 28, Will County deputies were called to New Image Lounge, 7815 W. Lincoln Highway, after receiving a report of a disturbance, Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said in an email.
A bartender said that Robert S. Patterson, 32, of the 9100 block of West 140th Street, Orland Park, was acting aggressively toward a female patron and struck her in the hand, Hoffmeyer said.
When an older gentleman approached Patterson to defend the woman, Patterson punched him in the face, causing a 2-inch split lip and knocking a tooth loose, Hoffmeyer said. Patterson and the other man were not at the bar when the deputies arrived, but later were found at a Shell station on West Lincoln Highway, she said.
Patterson was arrested and charged with aggravated battery.
