Police say the same man could be responsible for two convenience store robberies in Frankfort on Monday night.
About 9 p.m. Monday, an employee at Swifty Oil on Versailles Road called police and said a masked man came into the store, demanded cash and hit him with a pipe or a wrench, according to a news release from Frankfort police. The man took an undisclosed amount of money.
Then, at 10:19 p.m., a man with the same description came into the Speedy Mart at 682 East Main Street, about a mile from the scene of the first robbery. The man pointed a silver handgun at a clerk and demanded money, again fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.
Both clerks described the robber as wearing a black hooded sweat shirt, a dark mask, dark pants and blue latex gloves.
A man matching that description also robbed the Speedy Mart on Aug. 17, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Frankfort police at (502) 875-8523 or Frankfort Crime Stoppers at (502) 875-8648.
