The Evansville Police Department is investigating two armed robberies.

The most recent one happened around 2:30 Friday morning at the Circle-K on Riverside and Boeke Road in Evansville.

EPD tells us a suspect wearing a mask entered the store with a rifle demanding money. Hours earlier officers responded to a similar situation at the Kwik Stop in the 43-hundred block of Pollack Avenue.

According to witnesses the suspect came in with a rifle and ordered the clerk to hand over cash from the register. He then fled the scene in a car.

Evansville Police are investigating the two incidents as connected. Anyone with information is asked to contact EPD or call the anonymous WeTip Hotline.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
