Two men punched a woman in the face and robbed her as she walked near the Trump Tower loading dock on Sunday evening, police said. No one is in custody.

The 56-year-old victim was on the 400 block of North Lower Wabash when the men walked up and punched her in the nose around 5:15 p.m., according to a CPD spokesperson. They then took the woman’s purse and ran eastbound on Lower Kinzie.

An ambulance transported the woman to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for lacerations to her face and examination of her nose, which may have been broken, according to police records. The CPD spokesperson said early Monday that the woman was in good condition.

The robbers are described as two black men in their late teens or early 20’s. One wore a black jogging suit and the other wore black and red clothing, which may have also been a jogger.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
