CTA Green Line trains are once again stopping at the Cicero Station on the West Side after a fight on the platform Saturday caused trains to bypass the station for an hour, the CTA and Chicago police said.

Officers responded to a call of two females fighting about 8:39 a.m. on the northbound platform of the station in the 4700 block of West Lake Street, police said.

Green Line trains began bypassing the station just before 9 a.m., the CTA said. Full service was resumed about 10 a.m.
