Police are warning residents of a person allegedly using Facebook to pull off robberies in Park Manor on the South Side.

In each incident, the male suspect, using the nickname “Sherry,” posts items for sale on Facebook Marketplace, Chicago police said.

The suspect is 16 to 18 years old with black hair in braids and a scar on his face, police said. He was wearing a blue T-shirt, black jacket, dark red windbreaker and black or tan pants.
