WRIGLEYVILLE — Two men walking near Wrigley Field early Sunday were forced into a car and robbed at gunpoint in separate incidents.

About 1 a.m. Sunday, a 27-year-old man was walking in the 3500 block of North Clark Street when two men forced him into a gray sedan at gunpoint, police said. He was driven a few blocks and let go after giving up his phone and wallet, police said.

At 1:15 a.m., a 23-year-old man standing on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of West Addison Street was also forced into a grey sedan at gunpoint, police said. He was released after giving a man his phone and wallet.

Neither victim was injured, and no one is in custody police said. Detectives haven’t determined if the incidents are linked, police said.
