Retired Oak Park Cop Thwarts Robbery on El

Clemet Harbour witness, then busts up, a robbery on the CTA Green Line.

"Uh-uh. This can't happen."

That's what retired Oak Park police officer Clemet Harbour told Oak Leaves, recounting a violent robbery he watched go down on the CTA Green Line on Friday.


Harbour, 62 and the department's former Detective Commander, watched as a teenager, one of two "punks" who boarded at Clark and Lake stop downtown, started punching a 17-year-old girl and tried to steal her iPod.

According to Oak Leaves, Harbour grabbed the boy and they both tumbled to the floor before the boy broke free, leaving the train without his sweater and cap —both of which were turned over to Chicago police.
