Could all these recent robberies be related?

From this week’s Chicago Journal/News Star Police Blotter – seems to be a handful of robberies lately from “3-4 men in their early 20’s” between the below and other crimes we’ve posted…..

Women Robbed on Balmoral
Four men driving a 2004 Chevy Impala robbed two women on the 1400 block of W. Balmoral. The 50- and 40-year-old women were walking eastbound on Balmoral around 9:50 p.m. Dec. 3, when a man in his 20s approached them wielding a tire iron and said, “You’re not going anywhere.” One of the victims began yelling, “No way, no way.” The robber pushed her on the ground and three other men approached the second victim, who reached into her pocket and handed over $65. The men jumped into their car and fled. The victims were able to provide the license plate number to police, who found the car parked at Hoyne and Norwood. The victims positively identified the car, which had also been used in a similar robbery in the 24th District. Police are investigating.
Chump change
A burglar broke into a garage on the 4800 block of N. Magnolia and busted windows of two cars parked inside to steal $10 in change from one of the car’s ashtrays. The theft was discovered at 9:45 a.m. Dec. 2.
Glenwood break-in
Someone forced open the door of a home on the 5300 block of N. Glenwood sometime between 7 a.m. and 6:15 p.m. Dec. 2. The burglar swiped a TV, laptop, digital camera and luggage.
Three against one
Three men in their early 20s ganged up on a 43-year-old man and robbed him around 11:30 p.m. Dec. 2. The victim was walking on the 5700 block of N. Magnolia when a man walking ahead of him stopped on the sidewalk. The man demanded money. The other men covered the victim from behind. The victim turned over $54 in cash and the men fled southbound on Magnolia. The victim ran home and called 911.
