Naperville police are warning of a string of robberies taking place in the west Chicago suburb.
As many as three incidents took place in less than 24 hours, the department reported, though authorities have not said if any of the robberies are related.
The first incident happened about 9 p.m. in the 1200 block of Hobson Road. police said responding officers were told the victim and a passenger in his car had just used an ATM at the Chase Bank in the area when a man armed with a handgun jumped in front of their vehicle.
The victim stopped the vehicle and the suspect entered through the rear door on the driver's side and demanded money. He then fled the scene on foot and no injuries were reported, police said.
The only description given of the man was that he was wearing all dark clothing.
A second report came in about an hour later in the 3300 block of South Route 59. Police said a pizza delivery driver was approached by a man with a handgun who demanded money before fleeing on foot to a sedan.
No injuries were reported in that incident either. The man was described as being 6 feet tall with a thin build and wearing dark clothing.
At about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, two men robbed a 7-11 store at Diehl and Rout 59. Police said the pair entered the store and one produced a handgun and demanded money. The suspects fled on foot with an unknown amount of cash.
The suspects were described as a 6-foot-tall black man with a thin build wearing dark clothing and a mask. The second suspect was said to be a black man, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a medium build and wearing dark clothing.
