BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - It’s meant to be a place for walking and exercising, but Bloomington police were investigating two robberies on the B-Line Trail within the last week.
The first robbery happened last Thursday and the most recent incident happened Monday.
Police said both robberies happened late at night and just half a mile away from each other.
More officers will be patrolling the trail and anyone in the area is urged to carry phones and report any suspicious activity.
People on the trail Wednesday said news of the robberies won’t keep them away from their favorite spot.
"If you go too far along either of the ends, it does get not as well-lit, not as much traffic, people, bikers and I feel that it could be more dangerous on the outer edge. But the downtown area seems pretty safe. The lighting is pretty good around here too," runner Taylor White said.
Call Bloomington police with any information about the robberies.
