The second robbery occurred Friday morning at 5:15 a.m. at the Alon Convenience Store in the 3200 block of Hillcrest. The suspect entered the store, showed a handgun and demanded money and merchandise.

Witnesses told police the suspect was six-feet tall and had a thin build. He was wearing a dark covering over his head, gloves, a dark sweatshirt and jeans at the time of the robbery.
