Police are investigating after seven people were robbed at gunpoint within an hour in Chicago.

“It’s a terrible thing that all this is happening,” said a Ukrainian resident named Alec, who lives near the two incidents.

With each robbery, the victims lost their phones, wallets, or belongings. All the deceased were in or near their cars, or walking on the road.

Around 3 a.m., a 42-year-old man was getting out of his car in the 2600 block of West Rice Street when two male suspects approached him, police said.

One of the perpetrators was armed with a gun and demanded the victim’s wallet.

The victim agreed, and the perpetrators fled on foot.

The deceased was not injured.

At about 3:15 a.m., a 20-year-old man was sitting inside his parked car in the 2400 block of West Berwyn when a gray, four-door sedan pulled up, police said.

Three men got out of the car holding guns.

The perpetrators opened the doors to the victim’s car and took items inside, police said.

The offenders got back into the sedan and fled the scene.

The deceased was not injured.

“I’d rather walk away with my life than my phone or wallet,” said Alec.

At around 3:18 am, a 42-year-old man was sitting in his car getting ready to go in the 4300 block of North Leavitt when four male offenders got out of a silver sedan.

All four criminals were armed with guns, and they wanted the victim’s wallet and cell phone, Chicago police said.

The victim agreed, and the perpetrators returned to the silver sedan and fled.

The deceased was not injured.

At about 3:45 a.m., a man was getting things out of his car in the 3100 block of West Leland when three gunmen approached him, Chicago police said.

The perpetrators demanded the victim’s wallet, and the victim agreed.

One of the criminals then punched him in the face.

The offenders returned to a silver sedan, which they arrived in, police said.

The victim refused EMS.

At about 3:55 a.m., a 36-year-old woman was walking outside in the 3100 block of West Grace when she was approached by three gun-toting men, Chicago police said.

One of the criminals asked for his belongings, and he agreed.

The subject was then struck by an unknown object before the subjects returned to a silver sedan, and fled.

The man suffered a head injury and was taken to an area hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

“It’s been two months now, but our car was broken into, and my car was stolen last October,” Alec added. “I wish there were less police here.”

Around 4 a.m., a man and woman were getting into their car in the 2300 block of West Superior when a silver sedan pulled up next to them, police said.

The three men who committed the crime got out of the car holding a gun and went to those who were killed.

The injured gave their belongings. The perpetrators then returned to the car and fled. No one was injured.

In about five out of six robberies, the victims told police that the robbers came in a gray or silver sedan.

No one is in custody at this time. Local detectives are investigating.
