Two Robberies In Tyler By Knife Point, Police Believe Same Man Responsible

Two convenience stores robbed at knife point in Tyler, just hours apart. Police said the same man is responsible.

The first happened at the Food Fast on Troup Highway around 1 a.m.

In the surveillance video released by police, you can see a man approach the counter, pretending he will buy something. He then pulls out a butcher knife and grabs money out of the cash register. The robber stole the clerk's car.

Then, five hours later, police believe the same man struck the Speed Trak on South Broadway.

The robbery was done in the same manner with the knife. The clerk's car that was stolen was later found.

If you have any information in these robberies, you are asked to contact the Tyler Police Department.
