A 15-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing a man and assaulting two other people on a CTA train.
The teen approached a 23-year-old man sitting on a Purple Line train Monday at the Adams/Wabash station at 201 S. Wabash Ave. and demanded his cellphone, Chicago police said.
After the man handed over the phone, the teen demanded the passcode and stabbed the man in the back with a knife, police said.
The man was transported in good condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said
The next day, the teen was armed with a knife when he robbed a 29-year-old woman sitting on a Purple Line train in the 300 block of North Wells Street, police said.
He then attacked a 51-year-old man and told him not to interfere, according to police.
The teen was arrested Thursday in Fuller Park and was charged two felony counts of armed robbery, a count of aggravated battery to a transit employee and a misdemeanor aggravated assault to a transit employee, Chicago police said.
He is expected to appear in juvenile court Friday.
