Chicago police are trying to track down two men who punched and robbed a CTA passenger at the Fullerton Red Line station last week.

Detectives released these surveillance images of the suspects who allegedly robbed a man of his phone and wallet on the train around 9::35 p.m. on Sunday, October 2. When the victim chased the men from the train, one of them punched him in the head from behind, knocking him to the ground, police said. The robbers were last seen heading east on Fullerton into Lincoln Park.

Police said the man in the blue “CK” shirt is between 25- and 30-years-old and 5’11” to 6’2″ tall.

The other man is about the same age, has a thin mustache, and stands 5’9″ to 6-feet tall, police said.
