BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Blytheville police are looking for two women involved in two armed robberies that happened in just an hour.

According to Captain Scott Adams with the Blytheville Police Department, the first armed robbery happened Monday night around 9:30 when two women went inside Jordan’s Kwik Stop,1139 West Main Street, and demanded money from the clerk.

Surveillance video showed the two women dressed in dark clothes, wearing bandanas around their faces and showing a small handgun.

The second incident happened around 9:55 p.m., when two women matching the same description robbed a Pizza Hut.

According to Adams, they do not know the amount of money stolen from the two locations, but they do think the robberies are related.
