RAVENSWOOD MANOR — A person has been arrested after a baseball bat rampage on the Northwest Side involving at least nine victims in multiple attacks.
Several Northwest Side women reported being attacked by a woman swinging a baseball bat at them, with some suffering minor injuries.
Police said Wednesday a person is in custody and charges are pending. ABC7 reported the woman arrested is believed to be the one responsible for the attacks.
There have been at least six attacks since Sunday involving nine women, officials said. In most, the women described a woman driving, getting out of a light-colored car, possibly a white sedan, approaching one or more women and swinging at or hitting them with her fists or a bat, police and two of the victims told Block Club.
An investigation is ongoing, police said.
Four attacks were reported Tuesday, one of which was partially caught on video and involved a mother walking down the street with her baby and sister.

The first attack happened about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, as a woman pushed her daughter in a stroller in the 4500 block of North Mozart Street, she told Block Club. The mother asked that her name not be used.
“This woman pulled over in her car and yelled out the window, ‘What would you do if I came and beat your ass with this bat?’” the mother said. “My sister and I laughed and thought she was joking. And then she got out with this bat that was in the front seat of the car and ran towards us.”
