Forest Park police arrived at the CTA station at 711 Desplaines Ave. a little after 2 p.m. and talked to a woman who said she was on an inbound train when another woman approached her, asking for money.

The woman had redness and swelling to her head and cheek, police said, but refused additional medical attention.
