The first robbery took place at the Circle K at W 26th and Cherry streets around 6:30 Saturday morning. According to police, a white man wearing a Halloween skull mask entered the store with a knife and demanded money.
Then 13 minutes later the Kwik Fill at Peach and Cherry streets was held up. The two stores are within blocks of each other.
