Antioch police said Friday they’re investigating “nearly a dozen” robberies related to bank visits in the past 90 days.

Police said the victims were robbed after leaving local banks.

Four of the robberies happened at a different location after the victims left the banks. In six other instances, robberies happened in the bank parking lots.

Police said the suspects have stolen cellphones, wallets, and money.

Police said detectives detained two robbery suspects after a foot pursuit and one of the suspects was carrying a firearm.

Police asked the community to be vigilant and take precautions. They said people should trust their instincts and be aware of their surroundings, and should show confidence and get away once they sense trouble.

They also recommended avoiding carrying large amounts of money, walking in well-lit areas, and not hesitating to report suspicious behavior to authorities.
