Armed robbers hit gas stations

January 13, 2012

Indianapolis police are investigating two armed gas station robberies Friday morning that may be connected. The first happened about 2 a.m. at the Village Pantry on 10th Street and Grant Avenue on the east side of the city. Two men reportedly entered the store, threatened the clerk with a gun, demanded money and took off on foot. The other robbery took place just after 4 a.m. at a Speedway in the 4000 block of South Madison Avenue, about eight miles from the other robbery. This time, two men fled in a car.
