Businesses in the Loop have been warned by police after the same 7-Eleven store was targeted by robbers five times in just a few days.

Between the hours of 1:30 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Dec. 23, 24, 25, 28 and 30, a 7-Eleven convenience store in the 0-100 block of N. Wells St. was robbed, according to an alert issued by the Chicago Police Department.

In each incident, one of the three offenders stands by the door as a look out and tells the clerk not to move or make any phone calls. The other two robbers fill backpacks with food, cartons of cigarettes and liquor bottles, according to authorities.

The suspected offenders are black men, 18 to 22 years-old.
