While two of these robberies involved individuals playing PokemonGo, there is no indication that they were lured to the location through the app.  However, we do believe that they were distracted by the game.

The suspects are described as three black males, 17-20 years of age, weighing 145-160 pounds. During the offenses they were wearing black T-shirts and white T-shirts. The black female suspect was the driver of the suspect vehicle, a white 4-door sedan.
