"Charged with Beating Greek" article - Chicago Daily Tribune, October 3, 1907

CHARGED WITH BEATING GREEK
Judge Petit spent two hours listening to three policemen of the Hudson avenue station, who had been charged by James Kostakos, a fruit dealer at North avenue and Sedgwick street, of having robbed and beaten him. The three policemen, who denied the charges, were Policemen McEvoy, Jennings, and Pierce.
Mrs. E. Margraf, 312 North avenue, who lives opposite the fruit store, testified that she saw three policemen leading Kostakos to the patrol wagon, but said she did not see them beat him, as was charged by Kostakos.
Kostakos will probably take the stand this morning.
