CHICAGO (STMW) — A 24-year-old man told police he was robbed and sexually assaulted at knifepoint near the North and Clybourne CTA station at 1 a.m. Tuesday.

The man told officers he was sitting on a bench at the Red Line platform in the 1500 block of North Clybourne Avenue when he was approached by another man, who forced him to go to a nearby ATM at knifepoint and withdraw an undisclosed amount of money, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.
