Elderly Man Attacked, Robbed, Thrown Down Stairs At Loop CTA Station

CTA surveillance images of Monday's attack were released by investigators on Wednesday. | Chicago Police

An 81-year-old man is in intensive care after being thrown down the stairs of a Loop “L” station during a robbery on Monday evening. Police are asking for help in identifying his attacker.

The robber grabbed the man’s hand and phone as the victim stepped off of a Brown Line train at the Wabash station around 9:25 p.m., police said.

A struggle ensued and the victim fell down the station staircase. He suffered bleeding on the brain, a cut to his head, swelling and bruising.

Police said the attacker, seen above, is a black man between 19- and 24-years-old. A CWB Chicago source who works closely with Lakeview social service agencies reported that they recognized the attacker as a female who has frequented the area.

Anyone with information about the attacker is asked to call Area Central detectives at 312.747.6384

Monday's attack is only the latest in which elderly passengers have been targeted on the CTA train system. Earlier this week, police issued a separate request for information about a violent robbery on the Red Line that left a 70-year-old man unable to communicate for two months. More details of that incident are available HERE.

  1. We've gotten to the point where murders are equivalent to a war zone and the elderly are used as prey. This isn't civilized.

  2. Could you image the international outrage if a white kid threw an elderly black man down a flight of stairs? And the ensuing riots?

  6. 81 years old....81!!!!
    Listen here you little sociopath douchebag, I don't care if you're male, female or indifferent --- you're a stinking coward. No morals. No conscience. No concept of what it means to be a citizen. A bankrupt narcissist coward. Got it.
    Now you can go off to the dictionary to find out what this all means.
    Or, here's a quick synopsis: POS

  7. "A CWB Chicago source who works closely with Lakeview social service agencies reported that they recognized the attacker as a female who has frequented the area."

    Does this mean that this dude "identifies" as a female and uses the social services in our area as a women?

    1. That’s a great idea!! Poor old guy. This breaks my heart. How can we help him to know that the decent people of Chicago care about him? Wish I could visit him in the hospital. Plz keep us updated on this situation, will you? Thank you for rounding out the details, CWB.

  10. If you want change next election pull the straight republican lever in the voting booth. After over 75 years of democratic rule the city has officially gone to hell. Why any tax payers continue to live in the city astounds me. A short train ride is all it takes to live in a safer less taxed suburb. The bangers are afraid to ply their trade in those suburbs because the police and judges do their jobs and arrest them and put them away.
