2 Lawton convenience stores robbed overnight

LAWTON, Okla._Two Lawton conveniences stores were robbed at gunpoint early Wednesday morning, bringing the total to four in just over a week.

Around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, an unidentified black man went into the Stripes at Northwest 40th Street and Cache Road, pulled out a gun and demanded money. The clerk locked herself in the office and the man tried to get into the register. He left without getting into the register or taking any money, but he did leave with two cellphones that were on the counter.

Around 3:00 a.m. Wednesday, a black man in his 20s with a goatee, wearing a red-knit cap and several layers of hoodies and dark shorts went in the Stripes at Southwest Sheridan Road and ‘E’ Avenue. The man, armed with a 9mm, demanded money when he came in. He left with an undisclosed amount of money and some cigarettes. He left the area in a silver four-door car that had a spare tire on the front driver’s side. Police found the vehicle a short time later and questioned the female occupant.

Police believe both of the robberies are connected, but were committed by different people. Police say the y were both in the car for both robberies. However, they’re not sure if these robberies were connected to the robberies last week.

Lawton police will continue to investigate and should know more at a later time.
