2 Bolingbrook Men Charged With Aggravated Battery of Police Officers

Christian A. Cardenas, 17, and Paul A. Ryburn, 21, were arrested at about 2:48 a.m. Saturday at 305 Woodcreek Drive.

Two men were charged with aggravated battery of a police officer after a struggle Saturday.

Christian A. Cardenas, 17, and Paul A. Ryburn, 21, were arrested at about 2:48 a.m. Saturday at 305 Woodcreek Drive.

Initially, officers said they saw three suspicious subjects at 107th Street and Canterbury Lane before Ryburn fled from police on foot toward Woodcreek Apartments. The K-9 Unit tracked him to 305 Woodcreek.

Police said Ryburn entered a first-floor apartment and locked out two female visitors, one of which had three children in the apartment. Officers were also informed there was another child inside and Ryburn had been drinking with the group police had attempted to stop, according to reports. The women told police they were concerned for the children.

The officers then saw two men fighting inside, police said. The door was opened by one of the occupants. Officers said they tried to conduct a well-being check in the apartment and were immediately attacked by Cardenas. Ryburn then grabbed one officer from behind and pushed him into a chair, police said. They then fell through a glass table, shattering it. Both Cardenas and Ryburn resisted arrest by physically fighting with officers, police said.

Cardenas and Ryburn are being held in Will County Jail, police said.

Ryburn's bail has been set at $1,300. Bail information was not available for Cardenas.

One male officer injured in the incident was treated and released, police said.

This guy attacked an officer and only gets $1,300.00 bail? Seems way too low for that kind of behavior.

U guys forgot to say that the k9 never tracked Paul nobody told u to come to the apartment because no one was locked outside u guys rushed in the apartment beating Christian up when hand cuffed and sent him to the hospital with a broken rib and broke the glass table on Paul's head. Also that u guys pushed a mother not caring that she was holding her 2 month old baby and she fell to the floor. oo and no one was fighting in the apartment!!!!!

Did these guys attend BHS? Are they Catholic? Are they Mexican?

Wow, Natali. Did you ever go to English class? You sound pretty credible.

According to the demographics on the Bolingbrook Village site, Hispanics make up about 10% of the towns population. Yet when I look at the Bolingbrook Patch sites police reports, Hispanics appear to be involved in over 50% of the crime that is reported. Will someone please explain to me why that is without making any racist comments.

Stupid comment Jaskie as always!! The scums are from your lovely Village! I sure hope the Officers did some damage to the scum bags! Hit or touch a Police Officer and pay the price!

Uncle Ben here is an update! The Hispanic population is now 24.5%!! Aye, Aye, Aye Aye...I am the Frito Bandito!
