Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying four men who robbed three separate victims onboard a CTA Red Line train early Friday.

Around 12:45 a.m., the four men seen here approached passengers on a northbound train as it neared the Fullerton station, police said. The men acted as if they were armed with a handgun as they took property by force, according to a police media alert. They were last seen walking eastbound from the CTA station at 945 West Fullerton.

Officers said they spoke with three separate robbery victims at the Fullerton station:
• A 22-year-old man who was punched in the face and robbed by the men as one of them held a hand inside their pocket as if he had a gun. He was treated by an ambulance crew for his injuries. 
• A 19-year-old man who was approached by the same men who demanded his property. He was not injured. 
• A 41-year-old man who was not injured as the men took his property with a threat of force.
Authorities said the men are aged 25 to 35, between 5’7” and 6-feet tall, and 140 to 200 pounds. Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Area Central investigators at (312) 747-8382.
