The CTA suspended service on the Yellow Line in both directions at the Dempster Station after a customer left a suitcase on a platform and tried to board a train.

The incident happened around 4 p.m. Sunday. About an hour later, Skokie police cleared the scene and trains resumed service.

Officials did not say what was in the suitcase or if the man got on the train. They say they are still investigating.
