CHICAGO — A pair of businesses were robbed at gunpoint Wednesday morning in Lincoln Park and River North, possibly by the same suspect, authorities said.

About 2 a.m., a man walked into the 7-Eleven at 2201 W. Lincoln Ave., pulled a gun on a worker and demanded money, and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

In the second incident, a man with the same description robbed a River North Dunkin' Donuts at 309 W. Chicago Ave. at gunpoint about 3:10 a.m., police said. He also fled from the shop with an unknown amount of cash, police said.

Cops gave the same description for the suspect in both incidents but couldn't confirm if the robberies were connected.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 30s wearing all dark clothing, police said.

No one was injuried in either robbery, police added.
