PHOENIX — Phoenix police are searching for two men involved in a gas station robbery near 7th Street and Bethany Home Road.

Detectives said two black men wearing hoodies were armed and entered the Circle K around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday.

The pair demanded cash and were able to get away.

Police tell ABC15, they believe these two suspects are involved in a string of robberies across the Valley.

The department said they have been able to collect strong evidence from each scene and hope they will be able to catch these men as soon as possible.

This is the second time this Circle K has been robbed in just about one week.

Two suspects were accused of robbing three convenience stores in Phoenix on Christmas Eve.

A clerk shot the suspect at his location near 7th Avenue and Indian School.

The suspect was taken to the hospital and another juvenile suspect was able to get away.

Phoenix police do not believe these two strings of robberies are connected.
