Police are warning of three armed robberies reported last week in Hyde Park on the South Side.

In each incident, someone was approached by a male who flashed a gun and demanded their property, Chicago police said in a community alert. The man then either fled on foot or in a red Hyundai Sonata.

The robberies happened about 8 p.m. April 27 in the 5100 block of South Lake Park Avenue, about 7:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of East 55th Street and about 3:30 a.m. in the 5000 block of South East End Avenue, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Area One detectives at 312-747-8384.
