Chicago police on Friday arrested and charged a Berwyn man with battery for groping a woman on the escalator at the LaSalle Street Blue Line station.

The arrest came after a community alert was issued about the incident, which occurred at about 2 am on Aug. 27. The man allegedly had followed the 19-year-old woman off the train and touched her from behind as she rode the escalator.

A CTA camera caught this photo of the man, which helped lead to his arrest.
