Man pleads guilty in attack outside Schaumburg nightclub

Updated 11/28/2012 2:50 PM

A 30-year-old Schaumburg man pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of attempted first-degree murder for beating another man with a baseball bat outside a nightclub.

In exchange for his guilty plea to the class X felony, Altin Bajrami was sentenced to 12 years in prison, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Mike Clarke.

Police charged Bajrami in March 2011 following a late-night altercation outside the Raven Nightclub in Schaumburg.

Authorities say Bajrami got into an argument with another man inside the club. That argument escalated once the men were outside, at which point Bajrami retrieved a baseball bat from his car and struck the man, police said.

Schaumburg police did not comment on the relationship between the men or what the argument entailed.

Bajrami must complete at least 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
