NOT-GUILTY PLEA ENTERED IN GANG ASSAULT ON MAN

Wilbert Hayes III, 19, of 18th Street, pleaded not guilty to charges of gang assault in City Court on Wednesday.

Hayes is accused in an incident in which a 43-year-old LaSalle Avenue man suffered a concussion, a broken jaw and a swollen tongue and had to have four teeth removed after he was beaten in an alleged gang attack at 11:30 p.m. March 9 in the 1300 block of Whitney Avenue.

Bail was set at $3,500 cash or $7,000 property, and the case was adjourned to next Wednesday.

Court papers note that a gang assault is charged when one person is aided by two or more others in an effort to cause serious physical harm.
