Hinckley fight leads to charges against 7

HINCKLEY – A fight Sunday night in Hinckley led to mob action charges against an 18-year-old Aurora man and five boys, with a sixth charged with aggravated battery, authorities said.

Gregory Rounds, of the 1000 block of Pleasure Court in Aurora, and the five minors went to a house in the 9600 block of Rimsnider Road in Hinckley and began fighting with another boy who was cleaning and doing other chores with a resident of the home, DeKalb County Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said.

“They had a dispute amongst them and they tried to settle it,” Dumdie said.

Police did not release the names of those younger than 18 who were arrested.

Rounds and the five other boys with him told the boy at the Hinckley home to leave. When the boy refused, Rounds and the others started hitting and kicking him, police said.

The boy who had refused to leave hit Rounds in the arm with a baseball bat, police said.

The boy who was attacked was transported to Kishwaukee Community Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Rounds refused to be transported, police said.

Rounds was taken to DeKalb County Jail, where he was released on his own recognizance Monday. The boy who hit Rounds with a bat was charged with aggravated battery.

All six boys were referred to juvenile court and released to their parents.
