WAUKESHA -- Waukesha police need your help identifying a pair of suspects who robbed the Clark gas station located on E. Moreland Blvd. near Manhattan Dr. on Sunday evening, January 8th. The suspects are believed to be the same two people who robbed a BP gas station in Waukesha five days prior -- on January 3rd.
FOX6 News has obtained surveillance video from both crimes. The suspects' clothing, MO and gun appear identical.
Investigators were called to the Clark gas station shortly before 7:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Police said two suspects entered the gas station and one suspect brandished a firearm, pointed it at the clerk and demanded money.
Cash was taken from the clerk and the suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival.
The armed robbery at the BP gas station at 500 Arcadian Avenue (near Hartwell Avenue) happened just after 8:30 p.m. on January 3rd.
Police said two suspects burst into the gas station, brandished a firearm, pointed it at the clerk and demanded money.
"She's so scared, so nervous, panicked. 'Oh my God!'" Tanveer Ahmed, the owner of the BP gas station said of his female clerk seen in the surveillance video.
Ahmed said the suspects demanded cash and cigarettes. They got way with part of the register and about $800.
Ahmed said when he woke up on Monday morning and heard of the robbery at the Clark station, he was certain it was the same suspects who hit his business.
"Those are the same guys who robbed last week -- the same guys robbed over at the Clark station (Sunday) night," Ahmed said.
The surveillance video from the Clark station Sunday night shows a man wearing the same green jacket, hooded sweatshirt, knit cap and blue bandanna as the suspect in the BP robbery.
The clerk didn't notice the suspect's gun right way -- greeting the man, saying "Hello, sir -- how are you?"
The suspect demanded cash, and got away with $477.
The accomplice was seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, gray pants and a black jacket or vest -- the same clothing as the second suspect in the BP robbery.
"I hope someone comes forward and recognizes these guys so we can put them behind the bar," Ahmed said.
Ahmed is offering a $500 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
Meanwhile, he's planning to spend $10,000 to install protective glass around his clerks.
"Life (you) cannot replace. Money -- always can. I don't want to take anymore risks," Ahmed said.
The owner of the Clark station told FOX6 News they're taking the same precautions.
Both of the clerks who had guns pulled on them have returned to work.
Waukesha police declined to comment on these incidents on camera -- telling FOX6 News Monday they were following up on a lead.
