A man told Forest Park police that two men pointed a gun at him and robbed him on a Blue Line train leaving the Desplaines Avenue terminal on Thursday, April 14 around 6:30 p.m.
According to a police report, the man was approached by two men who walked up to him and said, “give me all that [expletive],” with one pointing a gun at the man. The alleged victim turned over his wallet, cash, personal identification and cell phone, then exited the train at the Harlem Avenue stop. He believed the alleged suspects continued on the train.
The man did not report the incident until one day later, telling police officers that his fiancée convinced him to go to the police. His initial plan was, according to the report, to ride the Blue Line until he came across the men who robbed him and “do something stupid.”
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.
