He Said, She Said

Mitchell, 26, of the 15700 block of Terrace Drive in Oak Forest was charged with domestic battery and criminal damage to property after a man told police that she punched and scratched his neck and knocked his computer into his wall. According to the report, Mitchell took off in the man’s car following the fight and was stopped near 159th Street and Oak Park Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Mitchell claimed the man provoked her, but her version of events was described by police as “inconsistent.”

He Said, They Said

Though the woman claimed that she and Raziq had merely been wrestling, Raziq told police he has anger issues, according to the report.
