One person is in custody following the robberies of several CTA Red Line customers.

The holdups happened around 3:30 a.m. Saturday at the Loyola Red Line station.

The robber pulled a sawed-off shotgun from a backpack and demanded cell phones from other passengers.

No one was hurt, but the robber made off with six phones.

Police said the weapon was recovered and charges are now pending against the suspect.
