However, authorities did mention 1 North State Street and 125 South State Street, while discussing the crime.
After the victim was robbed, the victim’s sister chased the offender and became separated from her sister. Although the two were later reunited, the sister who gave chase lost the offender, said police.
The thief was described as a skinny, 18-year-old black male wearing a blue jersey with white stripes and the number 18 on it.
At 6:15 p.m., police tracked the stolen cell phone, via GPS, to the Cermak - Chinatown, Red Line station at 138 West Cermak Road.
For several minutes, it seemed the phone stopped moving.
But at 6:24 p.m., the cell phone started approaching the 55th Street, Garfield, Red Line station at 220 West Garfield Boulevard, on the city's South Side.
Eventually, police caught the offender at the next stop, at the 63rd Street, Red Line station, 220 West 63rd Street.
