Chicago police said a group of thieves, including a man in a wheel chair, are targeting people in the South Loop.
Police said the robbers have struck three times: Two incidents on July 3, and the most recent occurrence on June 30 in the 1200 block of South Wabash Avenue, police said.
Two of the incidents happened at 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. A third one happened in broad day light at 9 a.m.
Each time, a man in a wheel chair asked the victim for change or cigarettes. As the person was trying to help, up to four other men appeared and robbed them.
