Chicago police issued a community alert for businesses in Gage Park about a string of armed robberies.

Investigators say they believe the same suspect hit three businesses in the past month. In all three cases, the man enters the store, threatens employees with a gun and runs out with the cash.

Police say the suspect robbed businesses located at 50th Street and Archer, 50th Street and Pulaski, and last Friday, authorities say he struck a business near 55th Street and Pulaski.
