Chicago police detectives released surveillance images on Thursday of two men suspected of robbing a group of women in Lakeview.

The women, all 23 years old, were in the 3400 block of North Bosworth when two robbers approached them from behind at 9:28 p.m. on September 29, police said.

After pushing the women to the ground, the robbers held the victims at gunpoint and took their property, according to CPD.

We reported the following day that investigators believed the robbers jumped the turnstile at the Southport Brown Line station and escaped on a train.

That hunch apparently panned out, as the surveillance images police released today were taken at the station.

Detectives noted the “New York” sweatshirt one robber wore and the unusual design displayed on the back of the other robber’s hoodie.

Anyone with information about the men can contact Area Three detectives at 312-744-8263 regarding case number JG-444300.
