Soldier charged in attack on Chicago female security guard

"He expressed deep remorse".

Matthew De Leon, 23, of the 4900 block of West Eddy Street, Chicago, is charged with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, aggravated battery in a public place and aggravated battery a peace officer.

"I was absolutely horrified", said resident Nataliy Spivak. "I'm also considering the orbital and nasal frature of the victim". "You don't know how much damage you have done to me".

The guard went back inside, but returned soon after to find De Leon still outside.

The guard, who suffered extensive fractures to her face, stayed to clean up Matthew DeLeon's vomit before going to the hospital, authorities said.

"He punched me and threw his water bottle all at the same time", she told NBC 5. He, and the group of people, then simply walk away.

A Chicago man who was captured on video punching a female security guard is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond.

According to WGN, which broadcast video from the incident, the woman's nose and a bone under her eye were broken.

He added: "She was initially trying to help this thug by checking up on him to make sure he was doing all right as he was lying on the ground by the building". The president of the building's condo association started a GoFundMe page to help pay her medical expenses. "I just try to be strong for my daughters", Stigler said. She ended up being punched in the face for her kindness.

Stigler said she insisted.

Stigler had gone outside to check on De Leon when he became nauseous. "He's very remorseful. When I got out of the vehicle as he approached me, his body language told me how remorseful, how sorry he was". "He was passed out". I have numbness on the left side.

Although Stigler did not take this totally uncalled for treatment to her heart, her nose and eye require a minor surgery.

She stressed De Leon has not been in trouble in the past.

She even called 911, though police only drove by the apartment, according to WGN.

"You might as well finish what you started". "I'll have a black eye and may have to have surgery".
