4 suburban men charged with attacking multiple employees at SW Side Barraco's Pizza

Chicago police arrested four suburban men after they allegedly attacked multiple employees at a restaurant on the Southwest Side early Sunday morning.

The offenders allegedly beat four victims — a 20-year-old man, a 28-year-old man, a 45-year-old man and a 61-year-old man — at the Mount Greenwood Barraco's Pizza located in the 3000 block of W. 111th Street.

The incident happened at approximately 1:37 a.m. Chicago police arrived at the scene and were waved down by an off-duty police officer who said four men were battering and fighting Barraco's staff. The offenders allegedly battered the off-duty officer as well.

Chicago police later identified the offenders as Andrew Fedyk of La Grange, Harry Kenny of Glen Ellyn, Frank Paris of River Forest, and John Powers IV of Oak Park — all 20 years old.

They were arrested minutes after the incident, between 1:45 and 2:22 a.m. Some of the offenders were caught at the restaurant and the others were found nearby in the 11200 block of S. Whipple Street and the 11100 block of S. Albany Avenue.

Police brought the men back to the restaurant where they were identified by the victims and other witnesses, according to the arrest report.

The attorneys for the four suspects said that the three bouncers inside Barraco's were the aggressors and they claim to have video to back it up.

The 61-year-old victim — later identified as Nick Barracho — was unable to speak to police because of the extent of his head injury after Fedyak allegedly struck him several times in the face, knocking him to the ground. Nick was hospitalized but has since improved and has been moved out of the ICU.

Kenny allegedly punched another one of the victims several times in the head, leaving cuts.

Each offender was charged with four counts of aggravated battery in a public place, one count of aggravated battery with great bodily harm, and one count of aggravated battery of a victim age 60 or older.

Additionally, Fedyk was charged with a misdemeanor count of using a fake ID. Paris was charged with one count of robbery. Powers was charged with one count of aggravated battery/strangling.

The offenders were scheduled to appear in bond court at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse on Tuesday. They're due back in court on July 1.

Alderman Matt O'Shea said at least one of the victims was hospitalized.
