CHICAGO – A Chicago woman was attacked Monday along with her family by a hostile gang of teenagers outside a CTA Redline station on the South Side.

According to Chicago police, around 5:30 pm, a 43-year-old mother along with her 23-year-old daughter and 18-year-old godson were peacefully walking towards the 95th Street Red Line station when they were viciously attacked and robbed by a gang of 10 teenagers. 

The brutal beatings began when the teenagers started pounding the 18-year-old male victim and then turned their venom on the two female victims who attempted to intervene. 

The 23-year-old female victim received a fractured nose.  The teenage gang then fled the scene after robbing the three victims.
