Police are searching for two suspects who reportedly robbed several CTA passengers at gunpoint.
Police say the robberies occurred around 4:00 pm, Wednesday on the Orange Line train as the train was between the Halsted and Roosevelt stop.
The suspects reportedly boarded the train car and announced an armed robbery, police said.
They robbed several people and fled with items when the train arrived at the Roosevelt stop, according to police.
Romelia Garcia was pistol-whipped by one of the robbers. She decided to confront the men as they were robbing people. She said the assault took about seven minutes total.
The Guardian Angels patrolled the area Thursday morning
One of the Guardian Angels’ advice is to give the robbers what they want, it is never a good idea to fight back, “Your life is more important than anything you can hold,” he said.
Anyone with information for police regarding the suspects is asked to call Area Central Detectives at 312-747-8380.
