MARION, IL (KFVS) -

Marion police are investigating three early morning armed robberies that appear to be by the same suspects. 

Police say around 1:23 a.m. Tuesday, there was an armed robbery on parking lot of O'Reilly's at 200 South Court Street.  A delivery person was reportedly robbed at gunpoint by two males who later fled on foot. 

Then around 1:34 a.m., a second reported armed robbery happened in the 900 block of North Bentley Street.  This time, two males reportedly robbed two people of personal items during a home invasion. The suspects then fled on foot. 

A third robbery happened around 2:14 a.m. Police say an armed robbery happened at Huck's on 701 I. DeYoung Street.  Two males wearing hooded sweatshirts, gloves and facemasks allegedly robbed the store of an unknown amount of money. 

Police say the suspects showed a gun in all three incidents and appear to be the same two individuals.

According to police, the suspects in all three robberies appear to be 17-20-year-old African-American males with one suspect wearing a navy hoodie, and the other a gray hoodie.

Officers say there were no injuries reported in any of the robberies and no shots were fired. 

The suspects were last seen south of Huck's. 

Anyone with any information on the robberies should contact the Marion Police Department at (618) 993-2124.
