A man and a woman have been charged with beating and robbing two men at the CTA Belmont Red Line station on Wednesday —the third night of violence in Lake View.
Eva Watts, 20, and Sean Harris, 24, each face counts of aggravated battery and robbery in the attacks, police said.
After reviewing the video footage, CTA said the pair were involved in an altercation on the street, then entered the station and attacked two customers.
They pushed a 46-year-old man to the ground and beat him under the platform in the 900 block of West Belmont around 4:30 a.m., police said.
They stole his belongings and then went to the Red Line platform, where they beat another man, 48, and took his belongings, police said.
Both victims were taken to hospitals with minor injuries.
“This kind of behavior is reprehensible and will not be tolerated,” CTA said in a statement. “CTA will continue to assist police efforts in this matter.”
Three people were arrested but charges were only filed against two, police said.
Watts, from Irving Park, and Harris, from South Chicago, were expected to appear in court later Thursday.
