CTA attackers are the worst citizens in Chicago. No one every wants to be attacked, or have to worry about their safety while commuting. Chicago Police have put out a notice for a robber who is preying on lone travelers. This man is basically finding people who are riding the trains alone, and then robs them. There have been at least two incidents of this man mugging people on the train, in Lincoln Park. He tends to rob people during the “early morning hours.”
Chicago PD described him to as a male between 30 and 40 years old. He is about 6’2 and weighs between 190 and 200lbs. He was seen wearing a sweatshirt, and dark jeans.
CTA authorities are urging people to ride the train in groups to avoid this type of behavior. We know that that can be difficult at times, but please be safe, and if you happen to be the last person in your car, try to move cars if you can. If anyone knows who this man is, or has seen him, you can report the instances to CPD. Information about the robberies can be reported to Area Central detectives at 312-747-8382.
