CTA-related crime is up 40% this year compared to last.

In March, CTA officials said they would add more security on trains and buses, but they have yet to be fully deployed.

There is no one in custody, and Area Three detectives are investigating.

CTA said there were some service delays during the incident, but service has since resumed.

CTA officials also said they would provide any relevant security camera footage to police.
