Police Seek Suspects in Two Possibly Related Robberies

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Police are searching for a couple of men who they say committed two robberies overnight.

The first one happened at around 1 a.m. at the Stripes convenience store located on Ennis Joslin and McArdle. According to police, the duo threatened the store clerk with a tire iron, and stole cash from the register and some lottery tickets, and then took off.

They ran to a nearby apartment complex at Nile and McArdle. Police said both men had bandanas over their faces.

About five hours later, police were called out to that same area after a woman reported two men stole her purse by force, and then ran back into the apartment complex.

Investigators believe the two robberies are related.

One of the men is described as a male who wore all black with a black bandana and gloves. He was the one, police say, who had the tire iron in his hands. The second suspect is also a male, who was wearing a white pullover with black pants and a black bandana.

If you know anything about either of these robberies, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
