3 overnight robberies may be linked in Roscoe Village, Logan Square, Belmont Cragin

CHICAGO — Three armed robberies reported in about 45 minutes on Wednesday morning may have been committed by the same group of men. Chicago police have not yet announced any arrests.

The first robbery was reported in Roscoe Village shortly after 2 a.m.

Police said a 27-year-old woman was walking in the 3400 block of North Lincoln when a silver Kia pulled up. Three men with guns got out of the car while the driver stayed in the vehicle. They demanded her property. She complied.

Their getaway car is believed to be a Kia Soul that was stolen in Humboldt Park.

About 20 minutes later, four armed men pistol-whipped and robbed two people near Fullerton and Cicero. The crew escaped in a silver or gray car.

Then, around 2:30 a.m., two men were robbed as they walked in the 2400 block of North Sacramento, police said. A silver Kia pulled up, and five men got out of the car with guns to rob them.

In each robbery, the offenders were described as Black males wearing masks. One wore a green sweater. A surveillance video showed another wearing a white or gray hoodie.
