CHICAGO — Police are warning people in South Lawndale of two recent robberies apparently by the same man.

In a midnight July 6 incident on the 2500 block of South Troy, a man approached a victim and asked for $1. The victim refused and the man attacked him and took his wallet, police said.

Later, at 4:30 a.m. on the 3400 block of West 26th Street, a man with a similar description approached a victim with a knife and demanded money.

The man was described as Hispanic, 20 to 30 years old, 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds with brown eyes, short brown hair and a medium complexion.

Anyone with information should call detectives at 312-747-8380.
