 (KCEN) -- Temple Police are looking for suspects involved with robbing a Temple CEFCO... twice.

The first robbery happened Sunday a little after 12:30 a.m. Police responded to the convenience store located at 3805 S. 31st.

An employee said a man had entered the store, displayed a handgun and asked for money.

The suspect was given an undisclosed amount of cash. He then fled from the location and police were unable to find him. The employee wasn't injured in the robbery.

This suspect is described as a black male between 20 and 30-years-old. His height is about 5'07" and he weighs about 150 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black pants, a tan belt and black shoes.

A similar scenario happened at that same store on Monday.

A suspect pointed a black revolver at the clerk and demanded the victim open the register.

The robber left the store with an unknown amount of money.

This suspect is being described as a black male wearing a mask, a gray button down style shirt, black pants and black shoes.

Temple Police aren’t sure if the two offenses are related. Officers are asking anyone who has any information to contact the Temple Police Dept. at 254-298-5500 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-729-TIPS.
