(Baltimore, MD) -- Baltimore police are investigating a series of incidents involving ride-share passengers.

Officials say two of the incidents involved someone calling for an Uber and when their ride showed up, men with guns took the victims to ATMs to withdraw money.

On Monday, a similar incident was reported at the Horseshoe Casino.

Police say a man was picked up by an Uber driver at the casino's valet area.

Investigators say the Uber driver took his passenger to a location when another vehicle pulled up and as many as six men armed with guns ordered the man out of the car.

The victim was struck in the face by the suspects before they made off with his cell phone.
