About a half-hour later, IMPD responded to a reported robbery in the 10000 block of East 38th Street. Officers then responded to a 911 call just before 1 a.m. on East 17th Street. The victim said he was walking home when a man robbed him at gunpoint.
Around 2 a.m., a man said two men robbed him as he was getting out of his vehicle in the 4600 block of Round Lake Road. The victim suffered minor injuries; his stolen items were recovered, according to the police report.
IMPD was working to find out if there was any possible connection between the robberies, which followed a Monday morning crime spree targeting convenience stores and gas stations.
