SHARE Teen girls charged with Evanston cellphone robbery

Two teenage girls from Chicago are accused of robbing a woman of her cellphone after following her from an Evanston CTA station.

The robbery happened about 12:05 a.m. Jan. 10 in the 800 block of Judson, Evanston police said in a statement.

Three girls saw the victim at the Main Street station on the Purple Line, and followed her to Judson, where they took her cellphone by force, police said.

Police identified two of the suspects from CTA security footage and placed them both under arrest, the statement said. The girls, ages 13 and 14, live in Chicago and are being charged with robbery in juvenile court.

Their names are not being released because of their age, police said. Authorities have not yet been able to locate a third girl suspected in the robbery.
