Hispassenger was cited for possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

Beaten on next block: On Aug. 17 a male victim was beaten, kicked and had a chair thrown at him by an attacker on the 300 block of Leavenworth Street, who then told the victim he was “going to kill him.” Officers gathered information from the victim and searched the area where the suspect was last seen.
