Chicago police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who used a translator app and a gun to rob a CTA Red Line rider.

The suspect, who is between 25 and 35 years old, allegedly approached a person Tuesday at the 69th Street Red Line station and used a translator app to demand the victim hand over his belongings or he would be shot, according to a CPD community alert.

The suspect then lifted his shirt to show a gun tucked into his waistband. The victim then handed over his belongings to the suspect who fled the scene, police said.
