Battered man found under van

Battered man found under van

A man was found battered under a van Saturday morning. A condominium worker saw a man lying with his head and chest under at van at 6030 N. Damen Ave. and called emergency crews about 6:50 a.m., police said.

Police said the ground around the van was “disturbed” and it appeared the man crawled under the van during a struggle. The injuries do not appear to be from the van. He was taken unconscious to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston in critical condition with trauma to the head, police said.

The man was not carrying an ID and police are still trying to identify him Saturday afternoon. He is described as a 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 black man with braids and a goatee. He is believed to be 25- to 35 years old, police said.
