The first robbery happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday at the Stoneybank Wawa, located at 36 Baltimore Pike.

According to police, the suspect entered the Wawa and made a purchase at the register. He then displayed a handgun and demanded money from the register.

He did not obtain money and then fled on foot empty-handed.

Then shortly before 6:30 p.m. Sunday police believe the same man entered the Wawa and made a purchase at the register.
