Mob of black youths attack young man in Chicago after stealing his wife's iPhone

Chicago Police hope surveillance pictures help lead them to one of three weekend mob attacks on people downtown.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, a 23-year-old man was beaten up on the CTA Red Line near the State-Lake stop Saturday by a group of about six teenagers.

The teens had just stolen the man’s 24-year-old wife’s iPhone 4S. She had dropped the phone, and a teen had picked it up and taken it for himself.

The man told the teen to give his wife her iPhone back. But they instead began punching him in the face.

The group then fled the train at State and Lake streets, near the Chicago Theatre. more
