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.
