COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Police say they believe the same group of people was responsible for seven overnight armed robberies that included three Colorado Springs convenience stores, a motel and a gas station.

Police say the string of crimes began when a person was robbed at about 10 p.m. Saturday. The robbers then hit the first store about an hour and a half later.

The group robbed the other businesses before daylight, with the last robbery reported at a 7-Eleven. Employees said the robbers included three men and a woman.

Police have not released descriptions of the robbers. Authorities have not announced any arrests.
