The Waco Police Department is investigating an overnight convenience store robbery.

Police said the robbery happened about 2:50 a.m. Sunday at the 7-Eleven on South University Parks Drive.

Police said they may have someone in custody in connection to the robbery but did not provide any further information.

On Sept. 16, someone also robbed this same 7-Eleven early in the morning.

In that robbery, police said a man in a blue ski mask entered the store and ordered the clerk to give him money and cigarettes. The robber ran away before police arrived.

It's unclear at this time if the two robberies are related.
