Two Six Flags Great America employees were ejected from the Gurnee theme park Monday afternoon after allegedly attacking a female employee dressed as “Porky Pig.”
Taras Sikalchuk, 20, and Dmytro Petrychenko, 19, took a photo with Porky Pig about 2:20 p.m. Monday at Six Flags Great America in the far north suburb, then punched the mascot in the head 10 to 15 times, Gurnee police said Tuesday.
Both men are employees of the park and were visiting on their day off, Gurnee police Sgt. Jon Ward said.
Park security detained the men and Gurnee police responded about 4:30 p.m., Ward said.
Sikalchuk and Petrychenko, both of Waukegan, were issued local ordinance citations for battery and were ejected from the park, Ward said.
The suspects denied the attack, but witnesses confirmed the story, police said.
The 24-year-old woman inside the mascot costume suffered headaches and a stiff neck, but did not require hospitalization, Ward said.
The sergeant said the mascots are accompanied by a security guard, and attacks on mascots happen once or twice a year.
A Six Flags Great America spokesperson was not available for comment Tuesday evening.

PERTH, Australia — A man ejected from a pub in Australia broke into a zoo and climbed onto the back of a crocodile named Fatso, which bit him on the leg but then let him go. Police said they’re surprised the croc didn’t inflict worse damage. The 36-year-old man, who police said had just been thrown out of a pub for being drunk, told officials he scaled the barbed wire fence surrounding the Broome Crocodile Park in remote northwest Australia on Monday night because he wanted to give the 16-foot Fatso a pat.
“He has attempted to sit on its back and the croc has taken offense to that and has spun around and bit him on the right leg,” Broome Police Sgt. Roger Haynes said.
The saltwater crocodile then inexplicably let the man go, and he climbed back over the fence to safety, police said.
The man, who was a tourist from eastern Australia and whose name was not released, suffered some “very nasty lacerations” and was taken to a hospital, Haynes said.
“Saltwater crocodiles … once they get hold of you, are not renowned for letting you go,” Haynes said. “He’s lucky to have escaped with his life.”
Saltwater crocodiles are the world’s largest reptile and can grow up to 23 feet (7 meters). They have become increasingly common in Australia’s tropical north since hunting that almost extinguished the species was banned in 1971.

You remember the famous scene with Sharon Stone in “Basic Instinct,” right? ‘Nuff said. A 16-year-old teenager at Sickles High School in Florida is now facing the same “problem,” as a result of going “commando” so as to avoid panty lines in a yearbook picture. Unfortunately, it’s now resulted in the “yearbook crotch photo” incident.
Yes, the young girl, according to reports, is displaying her crotch in her photo on P. 219 of the Sickles High School yearbook, a la Britney Spears
. According to a local report, she found out about the photo when seniors got their yearbooks on Monday, and she has not been back to school since.
“I started crying, I was freaking out and I didn’t know what to do. This is my junior year, it’s so important. I didn’t think I could go back to school knowing that everyone knew and had seen the picture.”
Naturally her parents want to sue the school. The parents want the photo to be re-taken, but honestly in this time of recession, do we want a school to have to pay for reprinting? Some may say it was their fault for not noticing the crotch shot in the yearbook before printing, but based on what people are saying, the area in the photo is hard to make out.
Simple fix: a permanent marker. Collect any yearbooks that have gone out, wipe out the area, viola.
Dallas captain Brenden Morrow scores the games first goal against the Flames on 2/11. The problem was he shot the puck into the wrong net! The Stars started the game on a bad note but Calgary decided to let them score 3 unanswered goals. The Flames are having a hard time winning games without Phaneuf, huh? As it turns out, Toronto wasn’t such a good team to swap so many players with… Thanks to Morrow for the highlight goal! YOU SUCK TODAY!
