Chicago police are investigating two armed robberies that occurred Monday morning in Wicker Park and Humboldt Park. Another robbery was reported in Logan Square on Sunday afternoon.

Monday’s first robbery occurred in the 1600 block of North Marshfield around 4:15 a.m., police said. Two men displayed firearms and robbed a woman, then escaped in a blue Kia, according to a CPD spokesperson.

Then, around 5:39 a.m., a dark Kia was used by three men as they robbed a 43-year-old man in the 3400 block of West Wabansia. Once again, the offenders displayed firearms and robbed the victim on the street. The man’s wife saw the robbery happening and walked away to call the police.

An officer who handled the first robbery said the suspects were Black males who wore a yellow hoodie, a maroon hoodie, and a black puffy coat. At the second scene, the robbers were described only as Black males in their teens.

On Sunday afternoon, a woman was robbed at gunpoint in the 2500 block of North Kedzie. She told police that three men took her wallet and purse at gunpoint before escaping in a red four-door car that had a rear side window broken out. She was treated by EMS for a facial injury, according to a police report.

Chicago police have not announced any arrests related to the robberies.
