WILKES-BARRE - Two Turkey Hill stores about one mile apart were robbed early Saturday morning by a suspect wearing a scarf on his face.

City police said Monday the first robbery was reported at 1:45 a.m. at the Turkey Hill on South Main Street by what police say was a black man, medium build, about 6 feet 4 inches tall, wearing a dark hooded shirt and a scarf on his face. The suspect demanded a clerk place money in a shopping bag.

About one hour later at 2:45 a.m., a black male, medium build, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a scarf on his face entered the Turkey Hill on Carey Avenue and demanded the clerk place money in a shopping bag, police said.

Police said no weapons were shown during the two robberies.
