2 charged in attack of homeless woman on Mag Mile



A man and a woman chased a homeless woman into a Gold Coast hotel on Friday and beat her, then they stomped her head and face causing injuries that will require surgery, prosecutors alleged in court Saturday.

Associate Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered Sharese Gamble and Adrian D. Griffin each held in lieu of $750,000 bail for the early Friday morning attack inside the Intercontinental Hotel on North Michigan Avenue.

The incident began at about 2:25 a.m. after Gamble, 25, and Griffin, 26, left the Second Story Bar on East Ohio Street and began harassing homeless people along the Mag Mile, prosecutors said in court. Along the way, they encountered a homeless 28-year-old woman sleeping on North Michigan Avenue, according to Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Anna Sedelmaier. The pair pulled the cover from the woman's face and stomped on her before walking away, Sedelmaier said.

The woman followed the couple and threw a can, hitting Griffin in the back of the head, prompting the pair to chase after her, authorities said. At one point in the pursuit, the victim put her hands up, indicating she wanted nothing to do with Griffin, but the chase continued.

The victim ran into the hotel lobby and was running up a staircase when Gamble managed to grab her jacket and dragged her down the stairs before punching and kicking her, Sedelmaier said. When Griffin caught up to the women, he and Gamble took turns punching, kicking and stomping the woman’s face and head, authorities said.
