Three men were robbed at gunpoint minutes apart Wednesday in the South Loop in two separate incidents police say may be related.
A 42-year-old man was walking on the sidewalk about 10 p.m. in the 200 block of South Michigan Avenue when he was approached from behind by an armed male who demanded his coat, Chicago police said.
The man gave up the coat and the robber fled south on Michigan Avenue in a red Range Rover Sport, police said.
About 10 minutes later, two men, 26 and 41, were walking in the 200 block of East 13th Street when two males approached them from behind, police said. One male pulled out a gun and demanded their property.
They handed over their watches, wallets, cash, cellphones and coats, police said. The robbers fled in a waiting red Range Rover Sport, last seen driving south on Michigan Avenue.
Police said they believe the robberies may be related. The suspects are between 16 and 26 years old.
No injuries were reported, and no one is in custody.
