Spate of Robberies Strikes Minneapolis, Police Launch Investigation

Minneapolis police are on high alert following a series of 14 robberies on Saturday, predominantly occurring between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. The incidents share commonalities, involving suspects disembarking from a vehicle to target pedestrians. Descriptions of the suspects varied, with groups of three to six males and females, mostly juveniles or young adults, donning dark clothing and masks. Guns were reported in most cases.

Of particular concern, eight of the robberies involved a gray SUV, reportedly carjacked earlier in the day, raising suspicions of a coordinated effort. Minneapolis police are actively investigating to determine the connections between these incidents.

Sergeant Garrett Parten, the MPD spokesperson, assured the public that resources are dedicated to addressing these incidents promptly. All precincts are on high alert, and information has been shared with local law enforcement partners to enhance collaborative efforts.

The robberies took place at various locations, involving carjackings and direct robberies. Victims provided varying suspect descriptions, adding complexity to the investigation.

This remains an evolving situation, and the Minneapolis Police Department urges the community to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities.
