Virginia Beach, Va. - Beach police are looking for two suspects who may have been involved in two separate robberies Wednesday morning only minutes apart.

They say the first robbery happened at the Kangaroo Gas Station on Laskin Road at around 3:25 a.m. Two robbers, one armed with a pistol, went into the store and demanded money. They took an unknown amount and left.

The next robbery happened shortly afterward at 4:09 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store on Virginia Beach Blvd. In this instance, one of the suspects was also armed and approached the clerks to demand money from the register according to police.

Police say the descriptions of the suspects are similar in both cases.
