PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh police have been investigating the robberies of two stores by armed gunmen.
The first one happened just after 8 p.m. Sunday when a man entered the Dollar General Store in the city’s Bloomfield neighborhood. That man flashed a gun, demanded cash and ran away.
The second robbery happened just before 10 p.m. when a man entered the Schwartz Supermarket in Marshall-Shadeland. He demanded a clerk fill a bag with money – again at gunpoint – before running away.
Police say the robbers had vastly different descriptions.
The first man was about 260 pounds, 5-foot-9, and in his 30s. The second man was in his early 20s, about 170 pounds, with a slight build. Both men are black but also wore different clothes.
