Chicago police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man wanted for trying to rob a woman last June on a CTA Brown Line train in the Loop.

The victim was riding a Brown Line train around 9 a.m. on June 24 near the State/Lake stop when she was approached by a man in his late 30s who demanded money and pushed her onto a seat, according to a CPD community alert.
