Chicago police are seeking help in identifying four men who robbed and beat a man after they were unhappy with his five-dollar donation to their basketball team.

The four suspects were on a CTA Red Line train between 47th St and Garfield Park around 3 p.m. Sunday December 7th.

One of them approached the victim and solicited a donation.

But five-dollars wasn’t enough and he began harassing the man for more money.

The other three joined in, hitting the man and taking his iPod.

After going through the man’s pockets and taking all his money, they jumped off the train at Garfield Park .

    They need to allow CCW on the EL. Only way to deter this monkeys is to have a few instances where we hear about these perps getting a face full of lead. Then they’ll think twice

    Public transport is not a right. Such thugs need to be banned. Enforcement not more violence is the answer. I stopped using public transport after being threatened. Thank You for the information that nothing has changed.
    Peace and Goodwill

    And hate and racism goes on.
    Just like you claim all whites are not racist(I can’t tell by these nice generalizing comments)
    Sad that all of you idiots feel that way towards a race because of aa few bad apples..
    Same as grouping the good whites with you racist trailer trash.
