CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man in a clown mask is among a group of men robbing victims at gunpoint in the North Side Lake View neighborhood, police said.

Three men approach people on the street and take their cell phones, money, purses and wallets at gunpoint, according to a community alert from Area North detectives.

Robberies have happened Sept. 21 at about 2:15 a.m. in the 700 block of West Melrose; and about 2:45 a.m. in the 3100 block of North Clifton, police said.

In one of the robberies, the men made the victim kneel on the ground. One of the attackers, wearing a clown mask, struck the victim hard enough to cause a bruise.

The attackers are only described as 5-foot-8 to 6-foot-1 black men, possibly in their 20s, police said. All three wore hooded sweatshirts, one wore the clown mask and another a ski mask or scarf.

Anyone with information should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
