Southwest detectives are on the hunt for two men who are responsible for six armed robberies in just three days.
It began on Tuesday night when two men robbed a liquor store at 51st and Lancaster threatening employees with guns. Two hours later, with the same high-powered guns (believed to be Uzis), they robbed the Caprice Villa Lounge at 50th and Market and rode off into the night -- literally, on BMX bicycles, according to police.
The very next night, one of the men made his way into a packed Smitty's Bar at 52nd and Wyalusing Avenue where he threatened a man with an Uzi and demanded a female working at the bar give him the money from the register.
Soon after, the man met up with his partner and robbed a fourth establishment, a wine and spirits store at 46th and Lancaster. The men, who police suspect are about 19-years-old -- given their mode of transportation -- have made out with about $300 from each robbery and aren't expected to stop until they're caught, according to Southwest detectives.
One man was taken into custody Thursday night after he allegedly robbed a bar, said police.
A bar at Paxson and Market was robbed by an Uzi-touting man around 9 p.m. Thursday -- a man was caught riding a bike nearby the scene. He was considered a suspect for the Thursday incident and was being looked into as a person of interest for the other robberies, according to police.
That man has since been released.
