Three teenagers mugged a woman Thursday evening outside a River North hotel, police said. No one is in custody.

One offender pushed the woman as she stood near Courtyard By Marriott, 30 East Hubbard, around 8:20 p.m., according to a CPD spokesperson and a witness. Then, he removed jewelry from her wrists and took an iPhone from her hand, police said in a report.

A witness reported seeing two accomplices with the robber.

Patrol officers searched the area but did not find anyone matching the descriptions provided by the victim and witness. The woman was not injured.
