A woman texting on her iPhone was robbed in a South Loop Red Line subway last night, police said.
She was not hurt but the thieves made off with the phone during the robbery in the 600 block of South State Street about 7:15 p.m. last night, Central District police Lt. Richard Guerrero said.
The woman was texting on her iPhone while standing on a Red Line subway platform at the Harrison Street station when she was approached from behind, according to the lieutenant.
"The offender runs up behind her and snatched the phone out of her hands," said the lieutenant.
Two males fled up the stairs leading to Polk Street and no arrests have been made as of late Saturday morning. The two were only described as being in their late teens, wearing T-shirts and jeans.
The victim, in her early 20s, lives in the area and was not injured, according to the lieutenant.
