Police are warning residents of two robberies recently reported in Kenwood on the South Side.

In each incident a male arranged to meet with a woman using an online dating application, Chicago police said. When the male arrived at the location, he met the women who led him into a nearby residence and once inside he is attacked by three males who took his property.

The male is then forced to go to an ATM to withdraw money, police said. In one incident the robbers fled in the victim’s vehicle.

The robberies happened about 9 p.m. Feb. 9 in the 4700 block of South Ellis Avenue and about 12:45 a.m. Feb. 10 in the 1000 block of East 47th Street, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Area One detectives at 312-747-8380.
