BEAUMONT, Texas — Beaumont Police are looking for suspects after at least four armed robberies last weekend.

Another person reported being robbed at 9:15 p.m.Saturday, Nov. 15 near Hayes Lane and Cleveland Avenue. Two people said they were robbed at 9:40 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 in the parking lot of the Harbor Apartments in the 4000 block of Crow Road.
Another person reported being robbed at 10:20 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. in the 1900 block of Harrison.
All of these cases are under investigation, Beaumont Police Officer Haley Morrow said in a news release.
Beaumont Police said there are similarities in these robberies based on witness statements, but it is still unclear how many are related.
Witnesses described the suspects as two or three men in their teens to early twenties armed with black handguns and demanding money and other items like cellphones and wallets.
Beaumont Police asked residents to stay vigilant and aware of their surroundings.
"If you are approached by someone, who is armed and demanding your property, comply. No property is worth risking your life," Morrow said in the release. "Try to remain calm and get as much descriptive information about the suspects (race, gender, clothing description, physical description, tattoos, description of weapon, vehicle description, license plate, direction of travel) and call 911 immediately. If you see something, say something."
Anyone with information about these crimes should call Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers or Beaumont Police.
