According to the Daily Mail, the Chicago Police Department says the victim has special needs.

‘It’s sickening,’ Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said at a news conference on Wednesday night.

‘It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that. I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t.

‘I’m not going to say it shocked me, but it was sickening.’

Police said the victim is now in a stable condition in hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.

Police found the victim, who has yet to be publicly identified, walking down the street.

The victim is now at a hospital being treated for his injuries.The investigation is ongoing and no charges have yet been filed.
