St. Louis police are investigating several armed robberies believed to have been committed by the same group of men early Monday morning, including one near Ballpark Village. Four suspects wearing bandannas and carrying guns held up an undisclosed number of victims near the downtown St. Louis tourist attraction just after midnight. The same group of men, riding in a red Chevy Blazer with temporary Illinois license tags, is also suspected of committing another robbery in the 2000 block of Delmar Boulevard, which is about 15 blocks away. A third robbery was reported by a man and woman who had just parked their car in the 2100 block of Lucas Avenue. The couple said their two assailants did not display any visible weapons.
