  • On Oct. 2, Burger King, located on 100-F Colonades Way, was robbed at 9:23 p.m. One robber is described as a dark-skinned black man. He is between 18 and 25 years old, measuring 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall. Authorities said he was wearing a black, long-sleeve shirt, black pants and black shoes as well as an old-fashioned hat with a brim going completely around it. He was armed with a silver, semiautomatic handgun. The second robber was not seen enough for the victim to describe him.

    Police believe the string of robberies may be connected to a recent armed robbery in Raleigh.
