Two girls, one age 16 and the other age 15, turned themselves in to authorities Saturday after investigators published images of them in connection with the robbery and battery of two CTA Red Line passengers, police said. Four other suspects remain at large.
Prosecutors charged each girl with one felony count of robbery and two felony counts of aggravated battery in a public place. They are due in juvenile court on Monday.
Police said the two were part of a six-person group that attacked and robbed two female passengers on the Red Line at the Roosevelt station around 6:40 p.m. on Dec. 29.
The girls admitted to participating in the robbery and to punching and kicking the victims, police said.
Detectives continue to search for two males and two females in connection with the crime.
