Police are looking for help identifying a man who allegedly pushed a man down the stairs at the CTA Red Line Sheridan Station last month.

The attacker reportedly pushed a 49-year-old man down the stairs at the Sheridan stop, in the 3900 block of North Sheridan Avenue, and then kicked him in the head repeatedly after he fell. The man as a result suffered a broken pelvis and orbital socket, among other injuries.

According to surveillance footage from the police, the attacker had boarded the Red Line train at the Thorndale stop and exited at Sheridan. The attack took place on July 8 at 5 in the morning.

Police are looking for help from the public in identifying the man, pictured in surveillance images above, who is described as a 25 to 35 year old Filipino man, 5'03 to 5'07 tall and weighing 130 to 160 lbs, with brown, short parted hair and "olive complexion." The man was wearing a white polo shirt with a dark stripe on the collar, dark pants and gray shoes, police wrote in a police alert.
