EVANSTON, Ill. (WLS) -- Two teen girls, ages 13 and 14, are accused of robbing a woman in north suburban Evanston near a CTA station.

Police say the teens followed a woman from the Main Street station on the Purple Line just after midnight on Jan. 10, then robbed her of her cell phone in the 800-block of Judson.

Police said they identified the suspects using CTA security video footage. The girls, both of Chicago, were charged with robbery and will appear in juvenile court.

Evanston police say they're looking for a third teenage girl who was also involved.
