At around 11 p.m. a 28-year-old man walking on Donald Street was approached by three men. One of the men had his face covered with a bandana and confronted the victim with a weapon, while the other two went through the man’s pockets and stole various items.

Shortly after, two men and two boys were confronted in the 1200 block of St. Mary’s Road at around 11:40 p.m. One of the suspects had his face covered with a banana and stole items from the victims while producing a weapon.
