The suspect in the 2:55 a.m. robbery on Forrest Road was described as a 6-foot-1 black man who weighs about 190 pounds. Armed with a pistol, the offender was last seen wearing a dark blue hoodie and blue jeans, officers said.

In the Milgen Road incident reported to have happened around 9:44 p.m., the robber was described as a white man around the same height who was armed with a silver pistol. With a black cloth covering his face, the gunman wore a black hat, light-colored jeans, an orange/white/dark blue or black stripped shirt and black DC brand shoes with a white trim, according to police.
