BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – Police are promising extra patrols on the west end of Belleville this weekend in hopes of catching suspects linked to a pair of armed robberies.

Officers say a 61-year-old woman had her purse snatched Wednesday night while getting out of her car on Blue Ridge Drive.

About an hour later, an 18-year-old man was pistol-whipped and had his gym bag stolen near Signal Hill School.

The Belleville Police Department’s Facebook page is urging residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
