Two girls, ages 13 and 15, robbed women in the Loop twice this week: police

CHICAGO — Two girls, ages 13 and 15, robbed women in the Loop on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings before Chicago police caught them at the 79th Street Red Line station last night. The girls are each charged with two counts of robbery and one count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.

CPD said the pair pushed a 26-year-old woman to the ground in the 100 block of West Madison around 8:36 p.m. Tuesday and took her phone.

On Wednesday evening, they returned downtown, attacking and robbing a 30-year-old woman in the 100 block of West Jackson a little after 7 p.m., according to police.

Cops arrested the girls at 79th Street around 7:40 p.m., but it’s unclear how officers tracked them down so quickly.

Officials did not release any other details about the girls because they are juveniles.
