A man charged with robbing a 65-year-old woman at gunpoint at a Near North Side CTA Red Line stop was scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Authorities say the robbery took place Sunday afternoon at the North and Clybourn "el" stop. The suspect got away by running down the subway tunnel.

The victim was not harmed.

Police investigating the robbery arrested Daryl Russell, 31, a short time later. He was set to appear in court Monday for a bond hearing.
