San Angelo police are searching for a male suspect who is believed to have robbed two convenience stores Monday night.

According to a release issued by the San Angelo Police Department, officers responded to a robbery call at 10:13 p.m. Monday at the 7-11 located at 1719 Kenwood Dr.

The store clerk and an eye witness said a young Hispanic male, approximately 5’6” to 5’8”, weighing around 130-150 pounds entered the store. The male’s face was covered, he was sporting a dark colored backpack and wearing black clothing.

According to the eyewitnesses the suspect revealed a fire-arm and demanded the money from the cash register. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money before officers arrived at the scene.

The same night at 11:28 p.m. San Angelo Police responded to a second robbery at the Allsups, located at 3802 Sherwood Way. The description of the suspect matched the description given earlier and it is believed to be the same man responsible for both robberies.
