Evanston police report two people were robbed over the weekend in separate incidents.

On Saturday about 10:30 p.m. a man told police he was approached by five men in a blue Jeep in the 1500 block of Lake Street who forced him to hand over his Nike Air Jordan sneakers.

Then just after midnight Sunday morning a woman said two teenagers stole cash and a bank card from her as she walked near the intersection of Foster Street and Jackson Avenue.

Police are still looking for suspects in both incidents.
