Updated: December 18, 2013 6:57AM

Some CTA Red Line riders on the city’s North Side were surprised to see a naked woman on their train Saturday afternoon.

One rider tweeted: “I have now officially seen it all on the #redline.”

The 31-year-old woman was yelling at other passengers on the southbound train before the police removed her at the Granville stop, a Chicago Police Department spokeswoman said.

The police took the woman to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston for a psychiatric evaluation, saying it appeared she was suffering from a mental illness. The train was delayed for about 15 minutes.
