Shocking footage has been released by the Illinois state police of a cop in a patrol car being surrounded by a mob and his vehicle being attacked.

The violence took place in the early hours of July 3 at the intersection of Division Street and Elston Avenue, just north of downtown Chicago.

A trooper was traveling south on I-90 near Division Street at approximately 2 a.m. and noticed traffic had come to a complete halt on an exit ramp.

As they drove over to investigate, a crowd of mostly angry young men appeared out of nowhere as they sprinted toward the officer’s vehicle.

“Chicago, we have a gang,” you hear the officer say over the radio. “They just jumped on my car.”

Dashcam videos show that many of the vandals had their cell phones off while filming the drama for themselves.

The first attacker can be seen running to the car and jumping on the hood and then the roof.

Suddenly the windshield of the car was shattered by a brick.

Several attackers jump on the hood while stomping and kicking the vehicle.

‘Ah! They just broke my window. They just broke through the window.’ says the officer, keeping calm.

The officer can be heard calling for backup as he backs up, but the menacing crowd continues to jump and kick the vehicle as it throws rocks and stones.

Loud bangs are then heard along with a series of flashes as fireworks are launched at the car and some land directly on the vehicle.

The officer estimates the group is about 150 people, many of whom continue to follow the officer as he backs up the road.

The menacing crowd marched closer and closer to the trooper's patrol vehicle, some wearing face masks in an attempt to disguise themselves

“There are probably 150 coming at me now,” the trooper says. “Holy s***.”

The trooper was eventually able to pull his vehicle back and away from the crowd.

Police would not say whether the officer was injured in the incident.

“This kind of dangerous behavior endangers the general public and will not be tolerated,” the Illinois state police said in a statement. “ISP is fully investigating the incident, including the deployment of technicians to the crime scene.”

The attack on the police cars took place hours before a gunman armed with a high-powered rifle shot and killed seven people during a July 4 Independence Day parade in a wealthy suburb of Chicago.

Robert Crimo, 21, appeared in Lake County court on Wednesday after being charged with seven first-degree murders. He is expected to face a slew of other charges and is being held without bail.

Lake County State attorney Eric Rinehart told the court that Crimo carried out a “calculated and premeditated.” He said Crimo confessed to standing on a roof over the parade route and took aim at people across the street, reloading his Smith & Wesson AR-15 rifle three times.

State police are now seeking tips on the mafia incident and are asking those with information to call 847-294-4400.
