An Oak Park man has been charged with aggravated battery in downtown Naperville, authorities said Monday.

Paul Magee, 25, was charged after police said he attacked a man at 2:30 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of Benton Avenue and Washington Street.

Sgt. Lou Cammiso said it appears Magee pulled over the car he was driving so his passenger could get out and urinate on a building. Cammiso said the victim was walking home when he saw the man and made a remark about public urination.

"(Magee) took issue with the victim commenting, exited his vehicle and attacked the victim," Cammiso said. "The aggravated battery charge is a felony and is charged based on the severity of the injuries received."

The victim, whose name was not released, was treated at Edward Hospital.

Magee is being held on $7,500 bond at the DuPage County jail.

Magee is no stranger to Naperville police, who say this is his third battery arrest in the city since 2006. He's also been charged in the past with criminal trespass, possession of cannabis and driving on a suspended license.

No charges were filed against Magee's passenger.
