Two people in the 1100 block of E. North Avenue, about half a block away, were robbed of personal belongings, money and cell phones by several people wearing bandanas and armed with knives.

The next robbery happened at 11:09 p.m. in the area of Ponderosa Pecan avenues on Sunday. In that robbery, two teenagers were approached by two men wearing bandanas over their faces. The men demanded money and cell phones from the teenagers.

A person wearing a bandana over his face exited the vehicle and struck the bicyclist in the face, knocking him to the ground. The robber stole the victim's cell phone before fleeing driving off.
