Chicago police and the FBI are seeking the public’s help in finding a man who beat another man at a CTA station in Uptown last month and yelled a racial slur at him.

The attack happened on Aug. 15 when the suspect followed a 30-year-old man into the Argyle station on the CTA Red Line and struck him in the head from behind, causing him to fall, according to police and an alert from the FBI.

When the man asked why he’d been assaulted, the attacker told him he deserved it and used an ethnic slur against him and his partner, the FBI alert said.

Chicago police released images last week of the alleged attacker, who was described as between 25 to 30 years old.

He wore a diamond stud earring in his right ear, along with a silver watchband on his left arm and a metallic bracelet on his right arm, the FBI alert said. He also wore a gold-colored chain around his neck and a Chicago White Sox baseball cap.

Anyone with information was asked to call the FBI Chicago Office at 312-421-6700.
