    Chicago activists patrolling public transit after violent train robbery: report

    NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

    Chicago activists are reportedly volunteering to patrol Chicago public transit after a man was violently robbed on the Red Line train on Sunday.

    The Chicago Police Department’s transit branch released photos of two suspects accused of hitting a victim over the head with a bottle and robbing him on the train just before 3 a.m. on Sunday.

    A group of activists made plans to patrol the Red Line on Monday after the incident and have apparently been volunteering to patrol Chicago transit for months, according to ABC 7 Chicago.

    “We are going to continue to do this, the untouchables until this is curbed because people are scared to go to work,” Eric Lewis, a patrol volunteer, told the outlet. “It’s crazy out here. As we are standing out here, anything could happen.”
