South Euclid police say a thief wasted no time robbing two people on Tuesday.
It happened in the area of Adrian Road and Argonne Road around 10 p.m.
Officers say that as they were setting up a perimeter for the first scene, a 19-year-old man from Cleveland Heights approached them and said he had just been robbed at gunpoint while walking past the park on the corner.
Both robberies occurred within 15 minutes of each other.
The victim from the second case said the suspect was holding a gun and told him to empty his pockets. He ended up getting away with $30 in cash and a book bag full of books and notebooks.
