August 24, 2017-The suspects in a series of robberies which occurred in Hammond over the weekend appear to be the same suspects that shot a 73 year old man in Chicago earlier today. Chicago Police also suspect the individuals in a string of at least nine robberies. In the Hammond robberies, which all occurred during the daytime on August 21, police say the pair attempted to rob an 85 year old man, robbed a 67 year old man, and then robbed a woman walking with her 11 year old child.
“Investigators are following several leads they have received so far but would like to encourage the public to continue to reach out and contact the Hammond or Chicago Police Department with any information containing the possible identity of the suspects” according to Lt. Kellogg of the Hammond Police Department.
