Two women were robbed at gunpoint as they walked on the Magnificent Mile overnight, police said. No one is in custody.
Witnesses told police that a dark green Chrysler 300 with tinted windows pulled up in front of the Intercontinental Hotel at 505 North Michigan around 2:20 a.m. A woman emerged from the passenger side and approached the two victims with a handgun, police said.
The offender took the victims’ purses and then returned to the car, which was last seen eastbound on Ohio Street, according to police.
The victims, ages 31 and 32, were not injured. Police said the women never saw the robber get out of a car.
Officers on the scene said the robber was a Hispanic woman who stands about 5’2” tall and weighs about 150 pounds. She wore a dark sweater. The getaway car was driven by a man, but police had no further description of him.
