    Authorities say at least five robberies were reported in northwest Washington over the weekend, including one involving three people with guns.

    D.C. police say the guns were apparently used in a robbery in the 1900 block of M Street about 1 p.m. Sunday.

    About 2:30 p.m., authorities say a robber fled on a bicycle after a robbery in the 1300 block of 14th Street. Police say a robber was last seen on a bicycle about 10 minutes later after a nearby robbery in the 700 block of Fairmont Street. It's unclear if the same person was involved in the robberies.

    Two other robberies were reported at 11th and U streets, and in the 1200 block of Crittenden Street, on Sunday about 1 p.m.

    No injuries were reported.
