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.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
