Three men were charged with battery Sept. 30 following an Oak Lawn road rage incident, police said.
Edgar Hernandez-Sanchez, 28, of Blue Island; Horacio Lagunas, 46, of Orland Park; and Servando Hernandez-Sanchez, 29, Dixmoor, attacked a 37-year-old Orland Park man after he pulled in front of them near 87th Street and Ridgeland Avenue, police said.
The complainant said the incident took place at 6:49 a.m. when Lagunas got out of his van, walked to the victim’s car and proceeded to punch and kick him, according to reports. He said the offenders were driving behind him on northbound Ridgeland Avenue and flashed their headlights at him.
The victim got out of his car and tackled Lagunas. The other men in the van joined in the fracas, punching and kicking him while he was on the ground, police said. The man had a cut on his neck and a bruise on his forehead, police said.
The alleged offenders told police that the complainant cut them off in traffic, causing them to brake hard to avoid hitting him. They honked their horn, which led the victim to exit his car, approach the van and hit Lagunas, police said.
