A man charged with two armed robberies at convenience stores in the Loop and West Loop earlier this month has been ordered held on a $150,000 bond.
Tydeon Woodland, 21, was charged with two counts of armed robbery. Police announced the charges late Wednesday, claiming Woodland robbed a convenience store in the 500 block of West Lake on Oct. 17 and another in the 100 block of South Clark on Oct. 23.
In each robbery Woodland walked in the store with a knife and demanded money from clerks before running off, police allege.
On Tuesday, Woodland was held by CTA security in the 500 block of South Pulaski after he was recognized from a CTA lookout bulletin, police said. He was later identified in a line-up.
Woodland, of the 7100 block of South Harvard, was ordered held on $150,000 bond at a hearing Thursday. He will next appear in court Nov. 9.
