GANG ASSAULTS FIVE PEOPLE AFTER LASALLE PARK CONCERT

The punk extravaganza known as the Warped Tour came to LaSalle Park Monday, drawing several thousand fans and leading to one gang assault at a nearby fast-food restaurant, police said today.

Five people were sitting in their car in a Burger King Restaurant drive-through lane when about 30 males punched and kicked them, spraying them with Mace and breaking the rear and side windows of the car.

No serious injuries were reported in the 9:10 p.m. incident, described by police as a gang assault.

"It's apparent that these individuals were coming from the event in LaSalle Park," police spokesman Lt. Duane Rizzo said today.

He and other police officials said they did not have any concrete information to characterize the fight as a battle between any two organized gangs or factions.
