At 1:40am Tuesday Three Guardian Angels were riding a northbound Red Line when they noticed some suspicious behavior.

They witnessed 2 passengers filming something for school with a video camera. Three males then approached the students when one snatched the camera.

At that point Chicago Guardian Angels chapter leader Miguel Fuentes ran over and retrieved the camera.

A fight ensued and the Guardian Angles prevailed.

The first man “started to fight with us,” Fuentes said. “We wrestled him down and put him in handcuffs.” The train operator notified CTA Control, and contacted the police.

In the meantime, the Angels handcuffed two of the thieves but the third suspect escaped in the melee.

Both men are charged with robbery and misdemeanor battery causing bodily harm.
