In the most recent robbery, a male went into the store around 11 p.m. and spent about 20 minutes talking on a cellphone before demanding money from the register. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

In the Aug. 25 incident, a boy went into the store about 10:17 p.m. and approached the counter to inquire about cigarettes. When the clerk asked the boy for identification, a second person came into the store wearing a clown mask over his face. He then displayed a handgun and demanded cash.

Both boys then fled the scene of foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
