Chicago police on Tuesday morning announced that two boys and a girl have been charged with armed robbery. The boys also each face an additional count of armed robbery stemming from a separate incident Monday.

According to police, the three were identified after they allegedly robbed a 23-year-old man while at a CTA platform in the 1500 block of North Clybourn Avenue at around 8:45 p.m. The victim handed over his belongings and the trio fled the scene on the Red Line train, but officers waiting at the Cermak stop saw the teens and placed them under arrest.

The two boys were also charged in connection with the armed robbery of a 22-year-old man in the 1700 block of North Sheffield Avenue that occurred about just minutes before the Red Line incident.
