Suspects sought in stabbing of CTA worker downtown

Chicago police have released images of several suspects who were allegedly involved in an incident that ended with a CTA employee being stabbed at the Roosevelt station early Friday.

Police said a group of offenders began chasing a man on the Red Line platform around 2 a.m. when a 38-year-old CTA worker became involved in the altercation. A male offender stabbed the transit worker in the chest and stomach with a knife before the group fled the scene, police reported.

Another CTA worker transported the victim to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where his condition was stabilized.

Anyone with information about the suspects can contact Area Central detectives at 312-747-8380 about case JC-185988.
