Westfield Man Attacked, Robbed While Traveling in Chicago

Cousins are accused of discharging pepper spray in the face of the victim and stealing his iPad.

A 48-year-old Westfield man was attacked and robbed Monday morning while traveling in Chicago, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.

Cousins Thomas Garner, 18, and Termaine Brown, 20, are accused of discharging pepper spray in the victim's face and stealing his iPad while he was riding the Chicago Transit Authority's Orange Line on the Southwest Side of Chicago, according to the report. 

The victim, whose name is being withheld, was released from the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago where he was taken for facial swelling from the chemical spray, police told the Tribune.

Witnesses were able to provide police with descriptions of Garner and Brown, which led to their arrest.

According to Cook County state's attorney's office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton, bail was set at $500,000 for Garner and $100,000 for Brown. They are scheduled to appear in court again April 15.
