More than 20 armed robberies and carjackings have been reported in Chicago’s Lake View and Lincoln Park neighborhoods in the past month, police warned Wednesday.

In each incident, people armed with semi-automatic firearms approached “unsuspecting” individuals on the street and demanded their belongings, police said.

After turning over the property, the attackers entered a waiting vehicle driven by another person and fled the scene, police added. In a number of incidents, the individual’s vehicle was swept away.

Police said in two of the most recent incidents, both in Lake View, the individuals were shot in one of their legs.
