Seven People Robbed in Seperate Incidents Saturday Night

Seven people were robbed in five separate holdups Saturday night in Minneapolis.
The suspects, described as two men in their 20s, drove up to people in a car and threatened them with a gun. Nobody was injured, the Star Tribune reports.
Police are not sure if the five robberies are linked in any way. Sgt. Bill Palmer told the Pioneer Press that although the robberies had some similarities, police were not prepared to call them related.
The robberies happened all over Minneapolis, from near Richfield to southeast Minneapolis near the Mississippi River, at Franklin Avenue. Palmer told the Star Tribune that the areas were mostly residential.
The robbers stole wallets, purses, cell phones, cash and clothing.
Police are not prepared to release any more details regarding descriptions of the robbers or their car yet because the robbery unit had not yet investigated the case.
