A security supervisor allegedly pointed a gun at a fellow security guard in the parking lot of the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Blue Line station at 711 Desplaines Ave. just after midnight on Friday, Dec. 10.
A witness called 911 and told Forest Park police that two people were arguing “about time” before a woman shouted that the man had a gun. The witness said they saw the man, later identified as a CTA security supervisor, holding a gun while walking to his vehicle.
The woman involved in the incident initially left the scene but returned to talk with police and said she works as a security guard, and that she and her supervisor have “ongoing issues.”
At the end of her shift on Dec. 10, she said the supervisor refused to sign her time sheet, saying “she did not de- serve the hours she worked.” The pair then began to argue, and the woman relayed to police that she told her supervisor he “need- ed to stop acting like a b—h.”
They then briefly separated and went to their respective vehicles before the supervisor reportedly re-emerged with the gun and repeatedly said, “Who’s the b—h now?”
On scene, the supervisor told police he did not pull a gun on the woman and said there was probably a “play gun” in his vehicle. An officer found a BB gun in the vehicle’s trunk.
In a second interview, the supervisor, a 34-year-old Chicago man, again denied that he pulled his weapon. He has been charged with aggravated assault, according to a police report.
This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.
