CHICAGO (STMW) – Police have arrested a suspect in a pair of early morning robberies at a Blue Line station in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

A male suspect was arrested by South Chicago District officers Tuesday night and is being questioned by Area Central detectives Wednesday morning, police said.

It was not immediately clear if charges would be filed against him, police said.

The robberies have happened as passengers were boarding or exiting trains at the Western Blue Line Stop at 1909 N. Western Ave., according to a community alert from Chicago Police.

A 32-year-old woman was robbed on Jan. 6 about 6:45 a.m.; and a 28-year-old woman was robbed on Sunday at 6:25 a.m. A man took their property and ran away, police said.

He was described as a medium-to-dark-complected black man between 20 and 25, standing 5-foot-6 to 6 feet, and weighing 150-200 pounds, according to the alert.

Anyone with information should contact Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
