Police in Athens Township, Pennsylvania and the city of Elmira are investigating two attempted armed robberies that authorities believe to be related.

An armed suspect attempted to rob a convenience store late Monday night in Elmira -- but fled on foot without successfully taking anything from the store.

Police in Athens Township say the same thing happened at a local X-Tra Mart at approximately 3 a.m. Tuesday. The two police forces believe the same person is behind both crimes.

The suspect is a white male, and is believed to have been wearing a ski mask, with prescription glasses underneath. Anyone with information is asked to contact Athens police at 570-888-2200.
