Chicago activists reportedly volunteered to patrol public transportation in Chicago after a man was violently robbed on the Red Line train on Sunday.

The Chicago Police Department transit department released photos of two suspects accused of hitting a victim in the head with a bottle and robbing him on the train Sunday night.

A group of activists made plans Monday after the incident to patrol the Red Line and appear to have been volunteering to patrol Chicago for months, according to ABC 7 Chicago.

“We will continue to do this, the untouchables until this is curbed because people are afraid to go to work,” Eric Lewis, a patrol volunteer, told the outlet. “It’s crazy here. Anything can happen when we’re here.’
