CHICAGO (CBS) — Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a robbery suspect who held up a woman at an ATM inside a store in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

The robber entered a store in the vicinity of 300 W. Garfield Blvd. on Aug. 17 at about 4 a.m. and, after a woman had completed her transaction at the ATM inside, he took her money by force, according to a community alert from Chicago police.
