One man may have robbed two stores in the Lincoln Park and River North neighborhoods overnight, according to police.
Authorities aren't yet linking the two but released a single identical description of the robber in both incidents, which happened in the same Near North Side police district about an hour apart from each other.
In the first, a Hispanic man in his 30s wearing dark clothing walked into a 7-Eleven at 2201 N. Lincoln Avenue, displayed a handgun and demanded cash, which he received. That happened about 2 a.m.
At 3:10 a.m., someone matching that description walked into a Dunkin Donuts at 309 W. Chicago Avenue, displayed a handgun and demanded cash. The clerk complied.
In both incidents, he fled the scene.
Nobody was injured in either incident, police said. Nobody is in custody.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
