West Chester Police are investigating three robberies that happened in just over an hour on Saturday night. Police say two of the victims are over 60 yrs. old, and one of them was walking his dog.

The victims were not West Chester University students, however the university has placed a warning on it's website informing students of the incidents.

Borough police received three reports of robberies between 5:50 and 7 p.m. Saturday.

One robbery took place in the 50 block of Linden Street, the second near Darlington and Dean streets, and the third in the 100 block of East Washington Street, police said.
