Several minutes later at 9:45 P.M., a 19-year-old man walking on Conduit Street was approaced by three or four men who took his backpack, a chain, an iPhone and a charger, and his house keys. The victim could only identify one of the suspects as a white male.

Later Monday night, at 11:01 P.M., a 21-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were walking in Dias Field near Nauset Street when they were approached by four black men wearing hoodies.
