Armed robberies in Midtown could be related

    Four separate crimes within a two hour period early Sunday appear to be related.    In each, police say a dark colored Dodge or Plymouth minivan with three young men, between 17 and 25 years of age were the culprits.

     Four victims were robbed by gunpoint off of North Taylor and South Compton in Midtown. Two men and a woman were shot and injured in the separate robberies. 

     St. Louis Police investigators responded to the first call around 2:45 a.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of North Taylor where a 42-year-old man was ordered to turn over his money.  The man tried to run when an unidentified suspect opened fire, shooting the victim in the leg.

        About 45 minutes later, in the 3600 block of South Compton, a 24 year old man was walking when a suspect drove up and pointed a gun at the man.  That suspect took the man's wallet and cash, then fled.

          Just ten minutes after the call on Compton, two people were walking in the 4100 block of Bates when a minivan pulled alongside, three men exited the van and took a 39 year old man's wallet, and tried to take a 23 year old woman's purse.

      The female victim would not surrender her property and was grazed in the leg by a bullet fired by one of the suspects, who then returned to the van and fled.

      An hour later, at 4:40 a.m. Sunday, a 53 year old man was cleaning the parking lot of a market when two men, one armed with a handgun approached and went through the man's pockets, taking a cigarette lighter and cash before fleeing.

       Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.
