Rocky Mount police are investigating two Saturday night robberies.
Officers responded about 10:40 p.m. to a robbery that had just occurred at Griffin’s Food Mart on North Wesleyan Boulevard. The clerk told police two suspects entered the store, threatened her with a gun and stole money, lottery tickets and cigarettes before fleeing the scene.
One suspect was described as a 5-foot-10 black male wearing a yellow jacket while the second suspect was a 5-foot-6 black man wearing a white T-shirt.
About an hour later, police responded to the EP Mart on N.C. 4 where a 66-year-old man reported he was robbed at gunpoint by two men. One suspect was described as a 5-foot-10 black man, weighing 170 pounds and about 30 years old. The second suspect was described as a 20-year-old black man.
