Around midnight, a CTA passenger was mugged at the Edgewater, Berwyn Red Line “L” stop at 1121 West Berwyn Avenue.

A crook snatched the commuter’s iPhone, jumped onto the “L” tracks, and ran southbound towards the Argyle station at 1118 West Argyle, where he disappeared into the night.

The offender is a black man in his twenties with a dark complexion. He is approximately 5’8” and 140 pounds.

Police said the suspect, who was carrying a backpack, was wearing a white sweater, a dark-colored cap, and blue jeans.

The criminal is still at large.
