Police said authorities at Six Flags Great America ejected two off-duty employees from the theme park after they allegedly attacked a female colleague dressed as "Porky Pig."
Gurnee Police Sgt. Jon Ward says two young men took a photo with Porky on Monday afternoon, and then punched the mascot in the head 10 to 15 times.
Ward said park security detained the men until police arrived. He said the men were issued local ordinance citations for battery.
He said the suspects denied the attack, but witnesses confirmed the story.
The 24-year-old woman inside the mascot costume suffered headaches and a stiff neck.
