Waterloo Police investigate downtown area robberies

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waterloo Police are trying to find the man they say robbed a downtown restaurant and tried to rob a convenience store within minutes of each other.

They say the man first tried to hold up the 3 Star Mart on Jefferson Street just after 9pm Saturday night.  They say a man entered the store and demanded money.  They say the suspect indicated he had a weapon but didn't show it.  They say he did not leave the store with any money.

Three minutes later, they received a report of a robbery at Red Apple Restaurant on W. 4th St.  They say a man with a similar description demanded money from restaurant workers, got some cash, then ran off.

The suspect is described only as a white man, between the ages of 25 and 30.
