Shortly after midnight on November 23, a 22-year-old man was walking in the vicinity of 58th Road and 138th Street when he was approached by two men. The suspects brandished a firearm and put the man in a choke hold before removing his Samsung Galaxy cell phone and his wallet.

Some twenty minutes later the suspects struck again this time targeting a 31-year-old man and 38-year-old woman who were exiting their vehicle in the vicinity of 84th Drive and 148th Street. The suspects approached the pair, brandished a firearm, and removed an iPhone, a purse, and a wallet before fleeing the scene.
