Two people have been arrested for robbing a Waterloo convenience store Sunday morning.   It's the second armed robbery of a convenience store in two days.

Police say 17-year-old Eric Bickerstaff, Jr. of Waterloo walked into Kwik Star on Franklin Street just after 3 a.m. Sunday with a weapon demanding money.  They say he got it, then ran away.  During an investigation, police found Bickerstaff at a home in the 900 block of Mulberry Street and arrested him.  During the investigation, officers say they say they learned 20-year-old Ivan Woods of Waterloo was the getaway driver.  Both have been charged with 1st Degree Robbery and are in the Black Hawk County Jail.

Police say the two are not believed to be connected to the armed robbery of Kwik Star on Broadway Street early Saturday morning.  That investigation continues.  For more on that, click here.
