A Chicago television news crew has been robbed at gunpoint while they were reporting on a string of robberies.

Spanish-language station Univision Chicago says a reporter and photographer were filming early Monday in Chicagos West Town neighborhood.

They were robbed by three masked men brandishing firearms, who took their television camera and other items.

Police say no injuries were reported and no one is in custody.

It was the second robbery this month involving a Chicago news crew.

WLS-TV says one of its photographers was assaulted and robbed on Tuesday, Aug. 8 while preparing to cover a weekday afternoon news conference on Chicagos West Side.
