Investigators are looking for a may who may have robbed a yogurt shop and a convenience store in one evening.

At about 6:15 p.m. Sunday deputies were called to the Red Mango yogurt shot at East Sunrise and North Swan roads after a man implied he had a weapon in his pocket and demanded money, Deputy Jesus Bañuelos, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, said in a news release.

The robber was described as young, with a medium build, wearing a black jacket with three patches, blue jeans and a black hat. He was seen driving away from the yogurt shop in a silver, four-door sedan, possibly a Pontiac, Bañuelos said.

About five hours later, at 11:30, deputies responded to another armed robbery call in the area. A man matching the description from the earlier incident, robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store at East Skyline Drive and North Swan Road. Again, the robber demanded money and indicated he had a weapon, Bañuelos said.

In each incident, the suspect was given an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone with information about the robberies or the identity of the suspect should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
