Alarming Video Shows Large Group Attacking Woman in Downtown Chicago

CWB Chicago, April 17, 2023

An alarming new video has emerged that shows a woman being attacked by a group of young people in downtown Chicago. The footage, posted at the end of this story, is included in a sort of “brag tape” of video clips purportedly recorded during a “large group” incident in the Loop on Saturday night.

After the attack of the woman at 129 North Wabash, another clip shows a man punching a CTA bus operator through a shattered window next to the driver’s seat. Another shows young people jumping on an SUV.

CWBChicago has not yet confirmed that the footage is from Saturday, but the montage appeared online after Saturday’s event. Chicago police have said that nine juveniles and six adults were arrested during the course of Saturday evening.
