The same man is suspected of committing two robberies in a relatively short period of time early Sunday morning.

The first robbery, happened at a 7-Eleven on the 400 block of North Murray at about 1:00 a.m. The man walked into the store with a red shirt tied around his face, pointed a weapon at the clerk and demanded money.

The second robbery happened a short time later in the 300 block of South Academy Blvd. Once again, the suspect had a shirt covering his face and he pointed a gun at clerk and demanded cash. 

He took off prior to police showing up. Police tried using one of their K9’s to track the man, but that wasn’t successful.

The suspect is described as an 18-20 year old black man.
