5th Robbing Incident In Grant Park Shakes the Community

A string of incidents in Grant Park cause for alarm (via Tribune):
In the fifth attack at Grant Park in two weeks, two Columbia College students were robbed at the skating rink early Wednesday, Chicago police said.  
The two men, 18 and 19, were in the 100 block of East Roosevelt Road when three men approached them around 12:20 a.m., police said. The men indicated they had a weapon and demanded the students' cellphones.  
The robbery occurred a little more than 24 hours after a man was robbed and beaten by four men just a few blocks away, in the 600 block of South Michigan Avenue.

If these are related - and it seems like they are - the robbers are clearly acting in a brazen manner.  It's not a discrete place and the repeated frequency in close proximity makes it seem like they will strike again.

Be careful out there...
