CHICAGO — The FBI is investigating a possible hate crime last month at the Argyle Red Line station after a man was struck in the head from behind.
On Aug. 15, police said the man was followed by a suspect into the Red Line Argyle station.
The man was then struck in the head from behind, causing him to fall. The FBI believes the suspect said the victim deserved the assault and used an ethnic slur against the man and his partner.
The suspect is described as a Black man with a thin goatee, a diamond stud earring in his right ear, a silver watch on his left arm, a metallic bracelet on his right arm, a gold chain around his neck and a White Sox cap.
