Police said two offenders pushed a 22-year-old woman and then stole her property on the 100 block of West Randolph around 6:30 p.m. According to a witness, the victim sought help at a Starbucks after the robbery unfolded outside Hotel Allegro, 171 West Randolph.

Witnesses said the robbers—two tall, skinny, black males in their mid- to late teens—fled southbound on Wells Street after they mugged the woman. One wore a black hoodie and the other wore a blue hoodie.

The Loop robbery came one day after a 56-year-old woman told police three teens robbed her outside the Courtyard By Marriott, 30 East Hubbard.

Police said Thursday’s robber pushed the victim and then removed jewelry from her wrists and stole her phone around 8:20 p.m. He then fled northbound on State Street with two accomplices, according to a witness.

A CPD spokesperson said the offenders in Thursday’s robbery were three black males between 16- and 20-years-old. Witnesses said one is skinny and wore a gray hoodie with blue jeans.
