One CTA passenger was knocked to the ground and robbed while another was pepper-sprayed by a group of muggers at the Roosevelt station Saturday night, police said. Investigators have now released images of three suspects.

Police said a man was on the platform when one of the robbers attacked him from behind, causing the victim to fall to the ground at 11:30 p.m. The other male offender then took the victim’s valuables, according to police.

A woman who was with the two men pepper-sprayed another CTA customer during the attack, police said.

Investigators said the suspects are all between 17- and 20-years old. One of the men wore a blue and white bandana with a white shirt and gray pants. The other man has black hair with blonde tips and wore a gray shirt with dark jeans while the woman has long black hair and wore a denim jacket with black shorts, police said.
