Police seek suspects in two robberies

Police are looking for two robbers who we believed robbed two businesses in two hours yesterday. The first incident was reported at 9:40 a.m. Feb. 6 at the Subway at 6311 Troost. Surveillance video of that robbery is below. Two men came in, pointed a gun at the clerk, and said, “Give me the money, b----.” They threw a dark-colored backpack at her and told her to put the money in it. They were black males, both wearing hoodies and surgical masks with dark pants. The clerk saw them leave in a mid-size burgundy four-door car with a silver pinstripe down the side.

Then at 11:42 a.m. Feb. 6, police were called to the Circle K at 6897 E. Front St. about another armed robbery. The suspects were dressed similarly and wearing surgical masks. They again tossed a backpack on the counter and demanded the clerk fill it, stating “Give me the money, you b----.”

The video has audio (and some foul language):
