A woman on the city's North Side was attacked by robbers armed with pepper spray Sunday.

The woman was walking in the 400-block of W. Arlington Place when two men confronted her and sprayed her.

She struggled with the attackers, but they got away with her purse.

There were similar incidents in Lakeview last week, but Sunday night, police were not connecting the attacks.

Anyone with information on any of the crimes is asked to call Chicago police.
