LAKEVIEW — A 22-year-old Edgewater man was arrested within hours of police circulating surveillance footage of an attack on the Sheridan "L" station platform last week.

Adolfo Onofre, 22, of the 5800 block of North Kenmore Ave., was arrested Aug. 2, mere hours after police released footage depicting an alleged attack July 8 that left a 49-year-old man with a broken eye socket and pelvis.
