Chicago police issued a new warning Wednesday about store robberies in the Loop.

A group of teen girls and women has robbed at least three stores since late June.

Stores in the zero to 100 block of North Wabash, the zero to 100 block of East Madison and the 100 block of South State Street have been targeted.

In each case, the suspects try to shoplift items, then use force or threaten store employees who confront them.
