The photos show what appears to be the two thieves with medium builds. One of them was wearing a blue hoodie with a red bandana around his face, and the other was wearing a black hoodie.

“We received a call early in the morning, about 1:41 approximately, from our Valero Circle K. (We) received a call from the clerk that it had just been robbed at gunpoint,” Jahanara said. “These individuals with the clothing description may be tied into what happened earlier with San Antonio, starting the night before on their robberies that (San Antonio police are) investigating, too.”

Jahanara is reminding the community to be vigilant.

“Just be cautious and aware, especially around this time of the season, because you never can be too careful,” Jahanara said.

Police said the two suspects, at minimum, face felony aggravated robbery charges, but more charges could be possible.

If you have any information about the case, or if you notice any suspicious activity, call local police.
