REEDLEY, Calif. (KMPH) -

Police are searching for several people connected to a string of robberies over the 4th of July holiday weekend in Reedley.

The first robbery took place around 4:15 a.m. in the area of Haney and Myrtle avenues. Police say several men armed with knives and wearing bandanas got out of a dark-colored sedan and demanded money and a cell phone from a man.

Two people in the 1100 block of E. North Avenue, about half a block away, were robbed of personal belongings, money and cell phones by several people wearing bandanas and armed with knives.

The next robbery happened at 11:09 p.m. in the area of Ponderosa Pecan avenues on Sunday. In that robbery, two teenagers were approached by two men wearing bandanas over their faces. The men demanded money and cell phones from the teenagers.

About 20 minutes later, another robbery was reported in the area of Olson Avenue and Kings River Road.

Police say a person riding a bicycle was cornered by a dark-colored sedan reported in each of the previous armed robberies. A person wearing a bandana over his face exited the vehicle and struck the bicyclist in the face, knocking him to the ground. The robber stole the victim's cell phone before fleeing driving off.
