Durham police are trying to identify two men suspected of robbing two businesses at gunpoint minutes apart Monday, Oct. 16. No one was injured in either robbery.

The first robbery was reported at Cruizers at 2716 Guess Road at 3:22 a.m. Two men, both armed with guns, took cash and fled in a blue car, possibly a Hyundai Accent.

The second robbery happened a few minutes later at the Kangaroo at 3301 Guess Road. Two men armed with guns and matching the descriptions of the suspects in the Cruizers robbery entered the business and demanded money. When the clerk refused to give them money, the two men jumped over the counter and took several cigarillos.

The suspects were described as black males in their teens or early 20s. One suspect was 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 5 inches tall and the second suspect was approximately 5 feet 10 to 5 feet 11 inches tall. A third male was seen waiting in a vehicle during the robberies.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator B. Riley at 919-560-4440, ext. 29303 or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases. Callers never have to identify themselves.
