Community Alert from Loyola University

A community alert issued by Loyola University:

Loyola Community,

Campus Safety is writing to advise you of a few incidents that have been brought to our attention that have occurred recently on the CTA Red Line.

On Monday, February 13, two female Loyola students were victims of a battery at the Loyola Red Line station. The students were getting on the train when they had an encounter with a man who then struck both of the students resulting in minor injuries. Through a collaborative investigation with officers from the Chicago Police Department (CPD), an offender was identified, located, arrested, and charged.

Campus Safety was also made aware of another incident that occurred on Tuesday, January 31, on a CTA Red Line train at the Morse station. A female Loyola student was approached by an unknown male who inappropriately exposed and grabbed himself before demanding the woman’s cell phone and money. The woman was able to retain her possessions and reported the incident to the CPD.

Thank you for your time. Make sure to immediately report any incidents to the CPD and/or Campus Safety.

Director, Department of Campus Safety
