Man charged with pistol- whipping CTA passenger arrested

Posted on in Assault & Battery

On May 15th, a man dressed in black and and carrying a gun attacked a man waiting for a CTA train.  The victim sustained several injuries, and the thief escaped with the man's iPhone.  Four Guardian Angels who were waiting for a northbound train saw the attack and attempted to help the victim.  Each of the Angels suffered stab wounds from an unknown accomplice.

Last Thursday, police arrested 34 year old Keith Gunn, and charged Gunn with armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery/use of a deadly weapon.  Gunn's arrest came after a combined effort between Chicago police and the U. S. Marshall's service.

But Gunn's accomplice still remained at large.  That is, until Saturday night.

Police say that 23 year old Julius Price dropped by the jail to visit his friend Keith Gunn at the Cook County Jail, and was recognized during his visit.  Police arrested Price for the May 15th CTA beating outside the gates of the jail.  Following the beating, police released footage of the two men leaving the station, which led to Price being identified as the second suspect.

Price is charged with four counts of aggravated battery with a weapon.  According to the arrest report, Price repeatedly slashed at the Guardian Angels as they tried to hold Gunn down.  The Angels received wounds on their chest, arms and heads.  One Angel required seventeen stitches at a local hospital.

Gunn is being held on a $600,000 bail, while Price's bail is set at $750,000.
