Four children have been arrested after a series of robberies on the CTA Green Line. Police say they forcibly took cell phones from commuters.

After earlier incidents, police staked out the Pulaski stop.

Officers say they saw three young suspects running from the platform yesterday after robbing someone and were able to catch them immediately.

The suspects are 10-, 13-, and 14-year-old boys.

Later that same evening, officers arrested a 15-year-old boy right after another cell phone robbery at the same station.
