Police are cautioning residents of Bronzeville after two robberies were reported within blocks of each other earlier this month.

According to an alert from police, the robberies occurred about 6:30 p.m. on March 8 in the 3500 block of South Indiana and about 8:05 a.m. on March 10 in the 200 block of East 35th Street.

In both cases, three males approached a victim and either demanded or forcibly removed their property before running off, police said. In one robbery, one of the three suspects showed the victim a handgun tucked into his waistband.

The suspects were described as three black males between 14 and 21 years old, each standing between 5-foot-2 and 5-foot-7, police said. One of the three had “sandy-colored” dreadlocks and a light complexion, while another had an afro and a dark complexion.

Anyone with information on the robberies is asked to call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
