— Durham police say they are trying to identify two men who robbed a Kangaroo Express convenience store early Sunday.

Two armed men with bandanas over their faces entered the store around 4:45 a.m. and demanded money from the clerk, police said.

One suspect was wearing a black jacket, black shoes, a black bandana over his face, a black-and-white striped hoodie with a white T-shirt underneath and gray pants.

The second suspect wore a white hoodie with multi-colored stripes, long red gym pants with white stripes down each leg, red shoes and a red bandana over his face.

Police believe the robbery could be connected to three other robberies at convenience stores in the same area within a four-day period.

Exxon at 3321 N.C. Highway 55 was robbed at 3:05 a.m. on Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. On Nov. 1, at 3:05 a.m., a Kangaroo Express at 2503 N.C. 55 was robbed.

In each case, the robber pointed a gun at the clerk and wore dark clothing and a bandana over his face, police said.

Police ask that anyone with information about any of the cases to call investigators at 919-560-4415 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
