GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office investigated four armed robberies Monday night and so far two are believed to be connected according to deputies.

Lt. Tim Ridgeway said it all started when robbers pulled a gun on a man leaving a soccer game on Bridgeport Drive around 9:20 p.m. Monday.

"It makes me very uncomfortable, you know. I mean, I'm out here a lot," Katie Bray said on Tuesday.

She usually brings her dogs to the park near the soccer field.

"I normally feel relatively safe down here because the neighbors are right up there and the community pool," Bray said. "It definitely changes your mindset when you're just walking through the neighborhood."

On Monday night after the first robbery, investigators say a woman reported being robbed in her driveway on Bridlestone Court in Simpsonville, followed by a man being robbed in his yard on Cherrystone Court, according to Ridgeway.

The last robbery was reported on Pine Valley Road.  In this case, robbers wearing masks came to a woman's front door, deputies said.

Ridgeway said the robberies on Pine Valley Road and Bridgeport Drive look to be related at this time.

According to deputies, the victims reported two different vehicles being used in the crimes, a dark gray Honda Accord and a dark red Malibu. Ridgeway said they located the Honda Accord and have three suspects detained. No charges have been filed yet.

Ridgeway said the victims reported men and women being involved in the robberies.

No injuries were reported.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the Greenville County Sheriff's Office or dial 911.
