Two armed robberies less than an hour apart

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Two armed robberies occurred Wednesday night in Eau Claire, just an hour apart. 

The first happened shortly before 11:00 P.M. at a Holiday Gas Station on Eddy Lane. Then less than an hour later a Mega Holiday Gas Station on East Clairemont Avenue was held up. Both were robbed at gun point. 

According to the Eau Claire Police Department they believe the robberies may have been committed by the same person. Police say the suspect is still at large. That person was wearing a mask and had a gun in both robberies. 

Because of the distance involved and the short time in-between the two robberies, the suspect more than likely used a vehicle. 

More information is expected later today. If you have any information that may help contact the Eau Claire Police Department at 715-839-4972.
