A 35-year-old woman was attacked from behind and robbed near her Lincoln Park home on Tuesday evening, police said. No arrests have been made.

The offender and an apparent accomplice fled northbound, according to a police spokesperson. They are described as two Black males between 15- and 18-years-old. One wore a black t-shirt with black jeans, and white gym shoes. The other wore a black t-shirt with light-colored pants, and black gym shoes.
