CHICAGO (CBS) -- Two robberies were reported in the city's Portage Park neighborhood just moments apart Saturday afternoon.

Around 4:05 p.m. in the 5800 block of West Warwick two people, one armed with a baseball bat, approached a 32-year-old man and attempted to rob him.

One of the offenders tried to strike the victim with the baseball bat and the victim fled.

The two offenders got in the victim's vehicle by breaking the window.

Just 10 minutes later in the 5300 block of West Berenice Avenue, two men with a baseball bat chased a 21-year-old man and struck him in the head, and took his property.

The victim was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital for a head injury and was listed as in stable condition.
