ORLAND PARK, IL — A 17-year-old driver fell victim to a family-style beatdown in Orland Park on Friday, Feb. 19, near 151st Street and Harlem Avenue.
Just before 1 p.m. that day, the teen was driving northbound on Harlem when a Nissan crashed into the side of his car, according to Orland Park police. The Nissan — later found to be driven by a member of the Hamdan family —then blocked the teen’s car, police said. Several people rushed the vehicle.
A third vehicle approached — also occupied by Hamdans — and four people broke into the teen’s car, pulled him into the street, wrestled him to the ground and beat him, police said. The angry quartet continued to punch and kick him until bystanders stopped and tried to intervene, police said.
The teen suffered cuts and bruises on his face and was treated at the scene by Orland Fire District personnel.
Police later learned the teen was targeted by an Orland Park family over “family issues.”
All four Hamdans now face a variety of felony charges.
- Ishaak I. Hamdan, 22: Aggravated Battery (class 3 Felony), Vehicular Invasion (Class 1 Felony), Reckless Driving (misdemeanor), Leaving the Scene of a Crash (misdemeanor)
- Damin Hamdan, 23: Aggravated Battery (class 3 Felony), Vehicular Invasion (Class 1 Felony)
- Isa D. Hamdan, 55: Aggravated Battery (class 3 Felony), Vehicular Invasion (Class 1 Felony)
- Aida I. Hamdan, 52: Aggravated Battery (class 3 Felony), Vehicular Invasion (Class 1 Felony)
The Hamdans reside in the 7600 block of Ponderosa Court. They were jailed until Feb. 21, when they appeared before Judge Peggy Chiampas. She set bail for each Hamdan at $10,000.
