Evanston police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two males who police believe may be the ones who robbed a woman at the South Boulevard CTA station Tuesday.

The woman told police that two young men, one wearing a white shirt, the other a red shirt, approached her on the platform about 2:30 p.m. and took her cell phone by force.

Police say the images of the two men shown above appear on surveillance footage at the station from the time of the robbery.

If you have any information regarding the incident, please call the Evanston Police Detective Bureau at 847-866-5040.

  1. new federal health center

    Why is this being done, when we have two excellent hospitals in Evanston who have extensive outpatient departments that have operated for many decades on sliding fee scales and readily accept medicaid?  They have many attending as well as resident physicians who see patients in these two departments, plus they have immediate access to inpatient care if a person needs hospitalization.  Why duplicate these well-run systems? 

    Perhaps the two hospitals could coordinate their services and have improved systems to better serve the patients, including greater case management services that would follow up with diabetics and people with other chronic conditions who can be monitored by frequent contact by nursing teams.  Perhaps one of the hospitals will be creating an accountable care organization that will serve all of Evanston, assuming the ACA stands, and since the number of people eligible for medicaid would dramatically increase, these organizations would be well positioned to handle the larger numbers.

    It seems unfortunate that enthusiasm for a GOOD THING, i.e., a community health center, has not taken into account the practicalities, such as cost.  This often happens when federal money arrives; the municipality says, "Oh, great.  We have all this $$, so we only have to spend xxx$ to make it a reality."  And how much, as many have asked, is the xxx$ going to be?
