Chicago police are looking for a woman who committed two robberies on the Red Line this week. They’re also looking for a man who helped her commit one of the crimes.

According to a police bulletin issued Saturday, the people seen in these CTA surveillance images robbed a victim at the Lake Red Line station, 188 North State, around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 24. The victim was on the train when the duo mugged them and fled the scene.

Police said the suspect in blue is a woman, and the suspect in black is a man, both about 18 years old.

The woman committed a second robbery about 40 minutes later at the Clark-Division stop, according to a second CPD alert. Once again, the victim was on the train when they were mugged around 8:10 p.m.

Anyone with information about the pair can contact CPD’s Mass Transit Unit at 312-745-4447. The first robbery’s case number is JH276310. The second robbery, in which the woman worked alone, is JH277134.
