A man was injured in an attack Wednesday on a CTA Red Line train at the Argyle station in Uptown.

The man was beaten at 7:24 a.m. at the station, 1118 W. Argyle St., according to Officer Jennifer Bryk, a Chicago police spokeswoman. The attacker ran away before police arrived.

He was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life threatening, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Merritt.

CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said a rider required medical assistance after a “disturbance” on a southbound train, but did not provide further details about the attack. Trains at the station were halted for less than 10 minutes.

A man was stabbed and robbed while riding a train near the Argyle station last year, and a few months before that a man set a fire on a train that was stopped at the station.
