Chicago ride-share passengers being targeted by armed robbers, cops warn

Two women in Chicago's Near North Side district are allegedly targeting ride-share passengers and robbing them at gunpoint, police warned on Sunday.

The offenders pick up passengers who have ordered rides on ride-sharing apps — such as Uber or Lyft — and "subsequently [rob] them by force or gunpoint."

The suspects are believed to be two African-American females between 20 to 30 years old. They are between 5'5" to 5'9" in height and weigh somewhere between 120 to 150 pounds.
