The Chicago Police Department is looking for help identifying a suspect in a recent robbery on the Pink Line.

A man reportedly stole a cell phone right out of a Pink Line train rider's hand on March 10 at 8:55 p.m. as the train pulled into the Kostner station on the Southwest Side. Police say that the robber fled the train at the station with the cell phone in hand in the 2000 block of South Kostner Avenue, and was not caught.

Police released a photo of a suspect in the robbery via a community alert Monday afternoon. Police are seeking help from the public in identifying the robber. Police say he is a black teenager, between 5'07" and 5'08" and 120 to 140 lbs with a "medium complexion."
