Edgewater Man Arrested After Vicious Attack On CTA Red Line

CTA Video Still

An Edgewater man was arrested within a few hours after Chicago police released video stills of a horrific attack at the Sheridan Red Line stop. Authorities released the images last week of the July 8 incident that left the victim with a broken eye socket, broken pelvis and multiple bruises and abrasions.

On Aug. 2, 22-year-old Adolfo Onofre of the 5800 block of N. Kenmore Ave., was arrested and is charged with aggravated battery. Onofre is accused of pushing a 49-year-old man down the stairs of the CTA platform, then following him down where he continued to kick the victim in the head.

Police say that Onofre was identified within one hour of the video still images going public.

The unidentified victim was taken in serious condition to Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
