MCMINNVILLE, Ore. (KPTV) - The McMinnville Police Department is investigating two robberies that happened at the same convenience store.

The first robbery happened on March 10 at the 7-Eleven, located at 901 Southwest Baker Street. Police said a man entered the store, handed the cashier a note indicating he had a gun, but no firearm was seen.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic man, about 18 to 23 years old, about 5 feet to 5 feet 2 inches tall, skinny build. He was wearing a gray jacket with a pocket over the left breast, a black shirt under the jacket, very baggy shorts, black leggings, and white Adidas low-top shoes. He was also wearing a black cap under the pulled-up hood of the jacket, and the cap still had the hologram sticker stuck on the top of the brim. Police said the suspect wore a mask over his face, but a tattoo was visible on the outside of one of his eyes.

The second robbery happened at about 12:20 a.m. on Thursday at the same 7-Eleven. Again, a man entered the store, presented a note demanding money and indicated he had a gun. A firearm was not seen and the suspect left with unknown amount of cash.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic man, mid-20s to early 30s, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighed about 150 pounds. He was wearing a multi-colored plaid coat/shirt over a gray or dark colored hooded sweatshirt, and he had the hood pulled up over his head. He also wore a mask that covered part of his face, but a tattoo was visible near or under his eye(s), according to police.
