Police Search For 3 Suspects In Robbery At Roosevelt CTA Station – CBS Chicago
The female offender sprayed an additional victim with Mace during the attack, police said.
One offender is described as an African-American male wearing a blue and white bandana, a white shirt, and gray pants; another as an African-American male wearing a gray shirt, dark jeans, and with black hair with blond tips, and the third an African-American female with long black hair, a blue jean jacket, and black shorts.
All three suspects are between the ages of 17 and 20, police said.
The robbery came just over a week after police warned of a string of robberies at CTA stations in the Loop and South Loop – including the Roosevelt station, where robberies were also reported at 8:05 p.m. July 23, and 5:20 p.m. July 28. The station has an elevated platform that serves the Orange and Green lines and a subway platform serving the Red Line.
The platform on which the latest robbery happened was not specified.
In another incident involving the station around 3:30 p.m. July 24, a man standing near the exit on the train was seen in surveillance images snatching a woman’s property from her hands as he walked off an Orange Line train at the Roosevelt stop.
