Police investigate two robberies

Two people told Evanston police they were robbed Tuesday in separate incidents.

A 27-year-old woman told police she was walking in front of 1021 Lee St.  just before 11 a.m. when a man she didn’t know grabbed her purse and fled the scene on foot.

A 50-year-old man said two other men knocked him to the ground about 5 p.m. in the 700 block of South Boulevard and took his wallet.
