Euless police are investigating armed robberies that occurred minutes apart and less than one mile away from each other Tuesday night.
Police were first called at about 10:30 p.m. to the Overlook Apartment Homes along the 800 block of East Ash Lane, where the caller reported being robbed at gunpoint by two men in the parking lots of the complexes.
Minutes later, police received a similar call from a resident of the Colonial Grand at Bear Creek apartments.
According to investigators, the robberies happened after both victims parked and got out of their vehicles.
Euless Police Investigating String of Armed Robberies
The victim targeted in the 1500 block of Bear Creek Parkway has been reluctant to come forward because one of the robbers reportedly told her, "We know where you live," according to police.
"They're making themselves known that they mean business and that can be scary because they have a gun," Euless police Sgt. Scott Peterson said. "In the second offense the male [victim] made a quick decision that he would try to run. He tripped and fell and that could've been very bad for him."
Police said they believed the suspects may be tied to other robberies in Hurst and Bedford in the past two weeks.
Euless police have only a vague description of the suspects.
Police said both appeared to be in their early- to mid-20s, are about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and were last seen wearing black clothes and black masks.
If you know anything about the suspects or where they are, call Euless police at 817-685-1526.
