UNIVERSITY VILLAGE — Two students from the University of Illinois at Chicago were robbed Friday evening by two women — including one who was holding a Chihuahua, police said.

The two students were walking east near 1040 W. Harrison St. around 7:30 p.m. when two women in an older model, red SUV pulled up next to them, according to UIC Police.

The passenger, a petite white woman holding the dog, asked for gas money, and the male student gave them some cash, police said. The second student refused, and the driver of the car got out, shoved her to the ground and took cash from her wallet, police said.

The driver, described as a heavier white woman in her late 20s or early 30s, got back in the SUV and drove west on Harrison Street, then north on Racine Avenue.

The students were not injured, and their attackers did not mention or use a weapon, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call UIC Police at 312-996-2830.
