A series of recent robberies in south Evanston appear to be connected, police said.

Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott issued a community alert Friday warning residents about the pattern. Police believe two teenagers are responsible for four robberies during the last week.

On Tuesday night, robberies in the 200 block of Custer Avenue and the 400 block of Callan Avenue were reported. In both incidents, the teens displayed a handgun, Parrott told The Daily last week. The teens also robbed residents Wednesday night in the 300 block of Custer Avenue and the night after in the 700 block of Hinman Avenue.

The teenagers have been approaching residents after they park their vehicles and start walking toward their homes, police said.
