Man assaulted, hit with bottle on CTA Red Line
CHICAGO — A 26-year-old man is recovering from a fight that broke out when someone wouldn’t let the CTA train gates close late Wednesday night.
A fight broke out on the CTA Red Line platform at State and Monroe Street around 11:00 p.m. when a man was kicked by several men and hit in the face with a bottle before they escaped the scene.
Police arrested three men who they believe are in connection with the incident and they are currently in custody.
The CTA and Chicago Police have upped their security with unarmed security guards on trains and canine units in use.
According to the Paper, crime on the CTA is down from 2021 but still remains at its highest levels in the past decade.
