Man charged with throwing concrete at police station window, assaulting cops

A Northwest Side man was charged early this morning with heaving chunks of concrete at a large plate glass window at the 16th District police station in Jefferson Park Thursday night.

Three officers were injured when they tried to arrest the 38-year-old man, Chicago Police News Affairs Hector Alfaro said.

Andrzej K. Borowiec, of the 5300 block of West Wolfram Street was charged with three counts of aggravated battery to a police officer, one count of criminal damage to property and one count of misdemeanor resisting arrest. He was ordered held in lieu of $200,000 bail following a hearing today in Cook County Central Bond Court.

Police said Borowiec entered the lobby about 8:15 p.m. Thursday and said, "If the government wrecked my place then I will wreck yours," before removing the concrete from under his jacket and throwing it at windows at the station, damaging three of them.

Police say he then hit one of the officers three times in the face and flailed his arms while trying to resist arrest.

Borowiec was subdued and the three officers were treated and released from Resurrection Medical Center for minor injuries, Alfaro said.

The concrete chunks damaged the window but didn't break it, Alfaro said.

It's unclear what prompted the incident, Alfaro said. The station is located at 5151 N. Milwaukee Avenue.
