Police have issued a warning to Near North Side residents after a series of strong-arm robberies in the past month.

Chicago police say the attackers approach their victims on the sidewalk, punch or push them to the ground, and then rob them.

It's happened in the 400-block of North Wabash, as well as at State and Illinois, and State and Ohio.
