Crime Stoppers said the two women had dropped off their children at the bus stop around 6:40 a.m. on Jan. 17.
One of the women involved in the robbery, Eunice Cantu, told ABC13 she went to one of her neighbor's unit to smoke a cigarette when the suspect approached them and forced them into an apartment located in the 4500 block of Lockwood.
Once inside, officers say the suspect pulled out a weapon and demanded the victims' money and cellphones.

She said after stealing money from her friend's wallet, the man left on foot.
