In Donna, police are investigating two aggravated robberies that happened within an hour.
The first robbery took place around 10am at the El Tigre Mart on the 600 block of Main street. Police say a man armed with a bat, threatened the cashier and demanded cash. He took the cash drawer, ran out of the store, and drove off in a small green car. The suspect is described as a tall Hispanic man who wore a blue hooded sweat shirt, blue jeans, white gloves and a red and white bandana covering his face.
The second robbery happened about an hour later, at the Taqueria Morales on Business 83 and police say two masked men walked into the restaurant's kitchen area and stole a bag full of money. The men took off in a white Chevy truck with about $600 dollars.
