Phoenix police are looking for the armed robbery suspects who targeted two people within the past 24 hours. 

The first robbery happened Tuesday night at the Circle K off 36th Street and Oak.  

A woman was standing outside the store, when police say a white car pulled up and four suspects jumped out. They demanded the woman hand over everything she had. The robbers took off with her purse. 

She was not seriously injured. 

The second robbery happened around 2:45 a.m. on Wednesday near 41st Street and McDowell Road, a mile away from the first robbery.

Police say the victim was walking down the street, when a white car pulled up and four guys jumped out. They flashed a gun and told him to hand over everything.

Police say the victim was hit over the head. He was able to walk home and call 911. 

Officials say the getaway car is a 2006-2008 white Nissan Altima. The car has tinted windows and lights.
