Attempted Robberies In Elmira, Athens Township Believed To Be Related
Tuesday, February 23, 2016 9:18 PM EST
By Kerry Longobucco.
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.
