CHICAGO (CBS) — Police on Tuesday were asking for help from the public in finding a man who held up two passengers at knifepoint on a Chicago Transit Authority ‘L’ train car last week.

At 5:30 p.m. Friday, police said the man was on a Green Line train at the Roosevelt Road station in the South Loop when he approached two passengers, took out a knife, and demanded an unknown amount of money.

The suspect then fled the train for the 0-99 block of East Roosevelt Road.

The suspect is described as a white male between 20 and 30 years old who was wearing a black Chicago White Sox beanie, a neon yellow “Staff Quick” T-shirt, and gray sleeves, blue seat pants, and black gym shoes. Police did not specify his height, weight or physical features.
