The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is investigating a second armed robbery in as many days.

Deputies responded around 8:30 p.m. to the Hand and Stone massage spa near N. Gavilan Peak Parkway and N. Daisy Mountain Drive.

Authorities said the suspect, a teen boy, entered the business with a handgun and demanded money.

The teen ran out of the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No injuries were reported.

Wednesday night, deputies responded to the Papa Murphy's near N. Gavilan Peak Parkway and W. Anthem Way. Officials said both suspects were described as younger-looking, but had not definitively linked the two crimes.

Both cases remained under investigation, MCSO said.
