BROOKLYN PARK (WCCO) — Police in Brooklyn Park are investigating four armed robberies that happened within one hour on Sunday night.
According to officers, three men armed with a handgun were robbing people on the street.
Sgt. Brice Sand the crimes happened between 9:19 p.m. and 10:18 p.m.

Police believe the crimes are related and that the same three men were responsible for all of them.
Victims told police the suspects had a handgun.
Sand said there were no serious injuries, but one victim was hit with the gun.
Police said the suspects took cash and cell phones.
Milburn said they are still investigating the possibility of more suspects because it would have been nearly impossible to walk from one location to the next.
“The locations are spread out across the city,” he said.
The news is unsettling for neighbors like Lombus Crenshaw, who lives on June Avenue.
“I was home last night. I’ll be on the look out from now on,” he said.
Officers ask anyone with information about the crimes to call 911.
