Chicago police looking for robbery crew who targeted 9 victims in 1 hour

Chicago police are once again looking for a team of four robbers who rapidly move from target to target.

Sunday's robbery spree – targeting 9 people in 1 hour – happened in the Bucktown, Logan Square and West Town neighborhoods. Last weekend, a similar robbery spree targeted 10 people in 30 minutes in the Hermosa and Humboldt Park neighborhoods.

Police have not said whether they believe same robbery crew is responsible for both, but the methods are similar: the 4 robbers jump out of a car with guns drawn, threaten the victims and steal their stuff, then take off in their car.
