Police charged a Michigan Avenue man with felony assault Saturday after they said he smashed a beer bottle over a woman's head inside a Main Street bar.
The 25-year-old victim told police she was dancing with friends and relatives inside Rumrunners at about 3 a.m. when she saw a man hit her sister. When she attempted to intervene, she was struck, causing a cut to her head, police said.
Jamaal D. Barksdale, 20, was charged with second-degree assault. The woman received stitches at a local hospital.
