Man Robbed Aboard CTA Train At Addison, 3 In Custody

The Addison Red Line station | Sub Chat

Three suspects are in custody following an armed robbery this afternoon aboard a Red Line train near the Addison Station.

The victim told a 911 operator that three men were trying to rob him at knifepoint and witnesses reported hearing the man screaming for the robbers to get away from him as he struggled for control of his cellphone, apparently as the 911 call was in progress.

Cops searching for the offenders were directed by a witness to three men who were standing at the corner of Sheridan and Dakin, just south of the nearby Sheridan station.

The three were detained and are now facing charges after being identified by a witness.

  1. (Remembers to start using Southport brownline stop whenever possible )

  2. What was the victim able to retain possession of his phone? Or if it did end up getting stolen did they recover it from any of the three suspects that were detained?

  3. And this is in addition to the guy who got stabbed at the Addison Red Line stop at 9:00AM Sunday? And the other incident where the woman was robbed at Dakin? All of which I know CWB covered...

  4. Wait, was this the stabbing or was that a separate red line incident?
