CARY, N.C. — Police are seeking information about two armed robberies in the Cary Town Center area Friday night.

At 9:27 p.m., Cary police responded to a strong armed robbery call in the parking lot of Cary Town Center at 1105 Walnut Street. A mall employee was robbed in the parking lot while he walked to his car.

The suspect and the victim got into a physical altercation, but a weapon was not used.

The suspect fled on foot. He was described as a white man in his early 20s, clean shaven, with a dark-colored ball cap and dark gloves.

About five minutes later, a woman was robbed at the ATM at the Wachovia bank on Walnut Street right outside the mall.

The victim was an employee of Icing, a jewelry store in the mall, and was making an after-hours deposit. The suspect approached her from behind and stole the deposit.

It was unclear whether a weapon was used.

The suspect was described as a white man with a thin build, wearing a black mask and dark clothing.

Police believe these are two separate incidents with two different suspects.
