Four men sought in Loop train platform attack, police say

A group of men beat a CTA passenger during a robbery attempt on a Loop L platform, Chicago police said Friday in a community alert. CPD’s Mass Transit Unit released surveillance photos of the men who are allegedly responsible for the attack.

Police said the group approached a 30-year-old man at the Clark-Lake elevated platform and demanded his property around 10 p.m. on August 20. When the victim refused to comply, one of the men beat him, according to the community alert.
