CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police on Saturday warned Chicago Transit Authority riders of a series of robberies on Pink Line trains.

Two men, believed to be between the ages of 20 and 30, walk up to commuters, grab their cell phones and then run off when the train stops at a station, according to a police alert.

The men were described as black and between 6-foot to 6-foot-2. Police were told one of the robbers was so tall that his head almost touched the top of the train door, the alert said.

Police said the robberies happened in the:

- Kostner station on Dec. 10 about 10:40 p.m.

- Central Park station on Dec. 15 about 6:50 p.m.

- Pulaski station on Dec. 16 about 6:04 p.m.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?
