The victims were all held up at gun point in parking garages over a three day period, starting on Saturday, May 10th.

The man was driving in his SUV when a man tapped on the window with a gun, forced the driver out of the Jeep, and drove off with the Jeep.

On Sunday about 9:20 a.m. a 39-year-old man was walking in the 500 block of North McClurg Court after parking his vehicle, when a Jeep Cherokee drove up and a man wearing dark clothing threatened him with a gun and took his belongings.

No vehicle was stolen in that robbery, according to News Affairs.

On Saturday about 7:30 p.m., a 31-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman were in a black 2014 Jeep Cherokee when a white van pulled up behind them and blocked them from moving.

A man got out and robbed the couple of the Jeep at gunpoint, then drove off in the Jeep, with the white van following.

In a separate incident, a gray 2014 Chevrolet Cruz was reported stolen Monday, although News Affairs did not have information on when the theft took place or what the nature of the incident in which it was stolen was. The alert, however, listed the theft of the Cruz among the “series” of carjackings.

Investigators released pictures of cars that are similar to the cars that were taken.

    No physical descriptions of the 'suspects' – – I'm sure I'd be able to tell the police more than what the 'suspect' was wearing…seems a bit odd~
