CSPD says its Robbery Unit noticed more than one pattern to the robberies and detectives learned two groups were operating independently.

The first set of robberies took place from April 6-9.

Suspects armed with handguns or other weapons approached victims on the street or in convenience stores and demanded property.

Five arrests were made in these robberies, including 18-year-old Charles Jackson, Jr., of Colorado Springs, and three juvenile males and one juvenile female.
