CHICAGO -- Six DePaul University students were robbed, just after midnight on Thursday, within minutes of each other and by the same group of robbers, according to police.

Police said the thieves jumped out of a white Audi SUV and robbed a student at Clybourn and Racine, four students outside Roy's Furniture on North Sheffield and another student about two blocks south of the furniture store.

Police said the thieves got away with the students' belongings but no one was injured.

In two of the incidents, police said one or more of the robbers were wearing surgical masks.

Only a vague description of the suspects was provided -- African American men in their late teens or early 20s.

Police say the white Audi's license plate may end with the numbers "8091."

No one is in custody.
