BURNHAM | A Chicago man and his girlfriend stopped for walking on railroad tracks were arrested Monday after it was determined the man was wanted by Illinois authorities, police said.

NICTD police stopped Salvatore Riso, 23, and Meghan Sauceda, 18, of Burnham and formerly of Hobart, at 7:10 p.m. as they walked down the middle of busy tracks in Burnham, transit police said.

As an officer prepared to issue the couple trespass citations, it was determined that Riso was wanted by the Illinois Department of Corrections for a parole violation and by East Dundee police on charges of residential burglary, theft and unauthorized control of a motor vehicle, police said.

Riso fought with the transit police officer and tried to flee, police said. An agent with Norfolk Southern Railway Police helped the transit police officer take Riso into custody, police said.

Riso was charged with criminal trespass, resisting a peace officer and obstruction of justice, police said.

Sauceda was charged with criminal trespass, police said.
