According to the alert, the women get into a cab in Chicago's downtown area and ask to be taken to the city's South Side. Police say when they arrive at their destination, they pull out a knife, put a cord around the driver's neck and demand money before they flee.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call the Area Central Bureau of Detectives at 312-747-8380.
