Minneapolis police are looking for suspects they say are behind a weekslong spree of armed carjackings and robberies across the city, including one episode Sunday in which a father was dragged a short distance as he tried to stop a man from stealing his vehicle with his wife and child inside.

The mother and child escaped, but the father suffered serious injuries in the incident Sunday afternoon in the northeast Second Precinct, and was brought to a hospital for surgery, police said. His condition wasn't immediately known on Monday.

Detectives are trying to determine whether the would-be carjacking was the work of a robbery crew they believe has been responsible for dozens of armed stickups over the past three weeks, most of which occurred in the Third and Fifth precincts on the South Side, although some reports have also surfaced downtown. No arrests had been announced.
