Police are looking for two men armed with a baseball bat who robbed three businesses in less than three hours Feb. 12 on the South Side.

The men – sometimes wearing black ski masks – enter small businesses on the South Side and one man, armed with an aluminum baseball bat demands money while the other stands by the door, according to an alert from Wentworth Area detectives.

The first robbery happened about 6:25 p.m. Feb. 12 in the 3300 block of South Leavitt Street, police said. A little more than an hour later the men robbed a small business in the 5200 block of South California Avenue. The men struck again about 9:05 p.m. that day, this time in the 4100 block of West 47th Street.

One man is described as a 16- to 20-year-old Hispanic man between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-7 and 130 to 185 pounds, the alert said. The other is described as a 16- to 20-year-old Hispanic man between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-10 and 130 to 165 pounds.

Anyone with information about the robbers should call Wentworth Area detectives at (312) 747-8382.
