Lubbock Police Ask For Help With Two Overnight Robberies

Lubbock Police are searching for information in two armed robberies overnight, both within minutes of each other.

The first robbery happened just before midnight Sunday, at the 7-11 in the 2500 block of Parkway Drive. Witnesses say the suspect displayed a small handgun and fled with an undetermined amount of cash. Police are now searching for a black man, about 5'8''. He was last seen wearing a red baseball cap and a black and white striped jacket with a hood.

The second robbery took place just minutes later at Joe's Mart about two and a half miles away. The store clerk told police the robber displayed a black semi-automatic pistol and took off with the contents of the register and a money bag. The suspect is also described as a black man, about 5'10'', weighing 130 to 150 pounds. The suspect was last seen wearing a black ski mask, black sweater, black pants and gloves.

Police are not sure if the two hold-ups are related, however if you have information that could help police with either one, please call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
