Highland Park resident Alisa Bay was in Chicago on Dec. 23 to do some shopping downtown before taking the Metra train back home.

While riding on the 6 p.m. Union Pacific North train, Bay, in between reading a magazine and people watching, noticed that a man seated a few rows ahead of her was “making a little bit of a commotion,” according to Bay, as he grabbed several bags from his seat before getting off and departing near Winnetka.
