Police investigate series of crimes near UC

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Police are investigating several offenses that occurred over the weekend near the campus of the University of Cincinnati.

The first was an aggravated robbery in the 400 block of Probasco around 10:30 p.m. on June 1 where the victim was struck with a handgun. Three suspects were involved. The first was a black male in his early 20s, 5'6" to 5'8" tall, wearing a black hoodie and with a black bandana over his face. Suspects two and three were only described as black males in their early 20s.

Another aggravated robbery was reported in the 600 block of Riddle Road around 12:45 a.m. on June 3. Again, the victim was struck in the head with a handgun. The only description the victim was able to give was three black male subjects.

An aggravated burglary was reported in the 2300 block of Stratford Avenue around 2 a.m. on June 3. A female resident of the house was assaulted when confronting a burglar. The suspect is described as a black male, 19 years old, 5'7" tall, 160 pounds, wearing a brown zip-up sweat shirt.

The Cincinnati District Five Investigative Unit is investigating several robbery offenses that have occurred over the past month believed to involve the same suspects. These suspects are described as 4-5 black males, 18-21 years of age, usually wearing white t-shirts. The suspects typically assault the victims and then steal various items. Firearms are also usually brandished during the robberies.

Other offenses have occurred on Ravine Street (2 separate offenses), Straight Street and Victor Street. All of these offenses have occurred either on a Saturday night or early Sunday morning.
