Chicago police are trying to find three men who allegedly robbed a CTA passenger at the Jackson Red Line station late Monday night. The robbery occurred shortly before another man was beaten and robbed in the Loop.

CPD released CTA surveillance images of three men who allegedly robbed a 23-year-old man at the Jackson station, 300 South State, around 11:56 p.m.

Anyone with information about the men can contact Area One detectives at 312-745-4443 about case JE-364186.

In a separate case that police have not linked to the men in the photos, a 54-year-old man was walking on the 100 block of East Lake when someone punched him in the face and knocked him to the ground around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. Another attacker struck the victim in the back of his head with an object while he was on the ground and the offenders took the man’s book bag and phone, according to police.

Officers chased several suspects near the Chicago Theatre, and some offenders are believed to have entered the Red Line station at Lake. Three suspects were arrested after they were identified as being part of the group that attacked the man, according to a CPD spokesperson. A 15-year-old boy was charged with armed robbery in connection with the Lake Street attack, according to a CPD spokesperson. The other two were released without being charged.
