Police are warning residents about a series of armed robberies reported earlier this month in the Irving Park and Albany Park neighborhoods on the North Side.

In each hold-up, one or two men have walked up to victims on the street and demanded their property while pointing a handgun at them, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.
