A man is accused of attacking a woman on a CTA train Wednesday morning in the Loop.

William Harris, 41, attacked an 18-year-old woman on a train about 10:20 a.m. in the first block of North Dearborn Street, police said. He threw several items at the woman, including shoes and a hardhat, before approaching her.

He pulled the woman to the ground by her hair and then sat on top of her before witnesses intervened, police said. They flagged down help at the next stop and Harris was taken into custody.

He was charged with one felony count of aggravated battery to a transit passenger.
