Teens beat, rob man at Roosevelt CTA station Wednesday night

Three people attacked and robbed a man Wednesday night as he exited an Orange Line train at the Roosevelt station, 1167 South State.

The offenders, who are between 17- and 20-years-old, punched the man in the head and took his wallet and phone at 11:08 p.m., according to Chicago police. All three attackers then exited the station.

An ambulance transported the victim to Mercy Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, according to a CPD spokesperson.

CPD said the robbers are three black males — one in a red shirt, one in a gold shirt, and one in a white shirt. No arrests have been made. Area 3 detectives are investigating.
