The woman told police she was outside the station around 12:15 p.m. when Ricardo Woods, 36, wrestled away her mat and ran away. When police arrived, they saw a DePaul University security guard chasing Woods down the street.

Woods was arrested after the woman identified him as the robber. He was still carrying her yoga mat, prosecutors said.
