The Dunbar Police Department is investigating two armed robberies that occurred Monday.
The first one happened about 12:45 a.m. Police said the victim had just bought something at the 16th Street Go-Mart. Police said he left and was walking west on Charles Avenue and was being followed by the suspect. The suspect then approached him in the area of 19th Street and Charles Avenue, placed a silver pistol to his neck and demanded his wallet. He got away with some cash.
The second armed robbery happened about 7 p.m. at the Super 8 Motel. The suspect asked the victim for a cigarette. As the victim was getting the cigarette out, he had some cash in his hand. Police said the suspect pulled out a knife and demanded money. The suspect was able to get away, but not before the victim was able to take a photo of him with his cell phone. The picture accompanies this story.
