Chicago’s Hero For A Day… Lives at Renaissance North!

Illinois National Guard Spc. Paville Simpson was proclaimed a Chicago Hero For a Day after he prevented a robbery at the CTA Red Line station at North & Clybourn Avenues on January 7th. Paville reacted to a bad situation swiftly and adeptly. Three teens were attempting to steal a CTA customer’s iPhone –but they didn’t count on Paville being there.  

“It was just a reaction,” Simpson said.  “(The victim) yelled and needed help, so I just helped him.” Paville handcuffed two of the teenaged robbers together, and held the third at gunpoint before police arrived.  Simpson credits his Army National Guard training and his work as an armed security guard.

Great Job Paville! We’re so proud to know you, and we thank you for your service.
