- Robert Hampton of Chicago, for whom this marks his fifth domestic battery arrest.
- Ronald Skipper of Chicago, for whom this was his 57th arrest – 17 of which are felonies. Skipper has been charged with offences including rape, burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, attempting to disarm a police officer and several drug offences.
While the operation was focused on those charged with domestic assault, it also yielded 27 supplementary arrests – which are incorporated into the 65 arrest total. Included in the collateral arrests were Jianzhi Zheng of Chicago (wanted on the charge of aggravated assault with a gun) and Dolton-based Terry Strickland of Dolton (wanted on an Indiana warrant for child molestation).
