ROSEVILLE — Police officers in Roseville and Citrus Heights are investigating three robberies that may have been committed by the same suspects.

The robberies occurred on Brimstone Drive in Citrus Heights, Madden Lane in Roseville and Dante Circle in Roseville between approximately 9 p.m. Saturday night and 12:40 a.m. Sunday morning.

In each case, the robbers confronted their lone victims on the sidewalk or in a parking lot near the victims’ homes, and demanded their property at gunpoint. In one of the robberies, the victim had nothing of value, so the robbers accompanied him to his house, where they rifled through his belongings and took his cell phone and wallet. None of the victims reported being injured.

The suspects were described as black males in their teens or 20s. One was 5’6″ to 5’10” in height with a thin to medium build, wearing a black down-type jacket and, in at least one robbery, a gray beanie cap. He was armed with a handgun. The other suspect was approximately 6′, with a thin to average build. He wore a dark-colored “hoodie” sweatshirt, possibly with a dark jacket over it, and a ski mask. No suspect vehicle was seen.

Anyone with any information about these crimes is asked to call Roseville Crimestoppers at (916) 783-7867. Callers may be eligible for a cash reward for information leading to arrest.
