"I don't feel safe walking along at night unless I have pepper spray," said Abigail Corliss who lives near Wicker Park. "It's a real thing that we have to think about especially, like, just walking alone. You can't even be out of your house and feel safe."
"Always pay attention because you never know what's going on behind you, to the side of you, or who's coming out of the door from you, you know?" neighbor Tommy Burek said.
Police said no one was hurt in any of the robberies while they continue to search for the suspect.
Anyone with information was asked to call Area 3 detectives at 312-744-8263 or Area 5 detectives at 312-746-7394.
