LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A string of aggravated robberies hit the Hub City Friday night, and police believe all 3 incidents are related.

The 1st robbery happened at the 7-11 at 2318 19th Street. Police say multiple suspects robbed the victim and stole his vehicle. The victim and a friend followed the suspects who eventually stopped and left the car, but they robbed the victim again using a shotgun.

The 2nd incident occurred at the Park Tower Apartments at 27th and Avenue Q. Police believe the same suspects pointed a shotgun at a man and his wife and robbed the man of everything he had on him.

A 3rd victim was also robbed next to a semi-truck Friday night. In this case, the men again pointed a shotgun at him, but this time only robbed him of $.68.

Police are looking for 3 Hispanic males in their 20s. They say in each robbery the men left in a purple car. If you have any information that could help police, you are asked to call Crime Line at 741-1000.
