Chicago police have charged an 11-year-old boy with robbing a man nearly six times his age on a CTA train. He worked with a 14-year-old girl to commit the crime, police said.

The pair robbed the 62-year-old inside a Red Line train car at State-Lake around 7:30 p.m. on May 24, according to police.

CPD said the girl also robbed a 41-year-old man at the Clark-Division station about 40 minutes later. This victim was also on a Red Line train.

Both juveniles are charged with robbery of a victim over the age of 60. The girl faces an additional charge of robbery.

No additional information is available about the teens because their cases were filed in juvenile court.
