Police arrested two men who punched a woman and grabbed her purse in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood Thursday morning.

Investigators hope this will solve a rash of similar muggings in that community.

The woman was attacked around 10 Thursday morning at North Ave. and Leavitt.

A witness called police after she heard the victim screaming.

Police are still looking for a third person in today's mugging.

This comes after several strong-arm robberies in that area that have happened since last December.

Surveillance video shows an attack on a woman walking on Damen.

Police say the offenders target people during late night or early morning hours.
