Pregnant woman attacked on Red Line train at Addison

A 25-year-old pregnant woman was punched and kicked by an unknown man on a Red Line train as they neared the Addison station late Wednesday night, according to Chicago police.

The woman was riding home just after 11 p.m. when the man approached her and began insulting her, police said. The offender then became physical, the woman said.

When the doors opened at Addison, the man ran from the train and left the station. The woman waited there for the police.

The offender was described as a slender black male in his 30’s who stands 5’5” to 5’7” tall. He was carrying a brown shoulder bag and wore a brown jacket and blue jeans.
