17-May-17 – The intoxicated man who Chicago police say punched a security guard in front of a River North condominium on Sunday has been arrested.

Chicago Police Department Matthew De Leon (left) is 23 years old and lives in the 4900 block of West Eddy Street, about eight miles northwest of the 165-unit condo at 630 North Franklin Street.

According to police, De Leon was intoxicated, lying on the sidewalk, and vomiting in front of the building at about 2 a.m. on Sunday. Security guard Zoa Stigler offered to call an ambulance but told De Leon he otherwise had to leave. When another man and two women showed up, De Leon started to leave with them but suddenly threw water at the guard from a bottle and punched her in the face, breaking her nose and fracturing her right eye socket.

A GoFundMe page, started by the president of 630 North Franklin Condominium Association to help Stigler (right) pay medical expenses, has raised more than $17,000 as of Wednesday morning. Zoa Stigler

De Leon is charged with three felony counts of battery, aggravated by inflicting great bodily harm on a peace officer in a public place. He will be in bond court on Wednesday.
