State police at Uniontown are trying to determine whether there is any connection between two armed robberies of two Circle K convenience stores in Dunbar Township and South Union on Thursday.

The Circle K store at 201 W. Crawford Ave., Dunbar Township, was robbed at about 2:32 a.m. by a man who brandished a silver-gray-colored handgun. The robber was 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall and wore a burgundy coat, gloves and a ski mask.

He may have arrived in a dark-colored two-door passenger vehicle, possibly with tinted windows.

The Circle K store at 251 Hopwood-Fairchance Road was robbed at 9 p.m. by a man who also displayed a handgun. He was described as being about 6 feet tall with an athletic build, wearing a gray sweatshirt with black lettering across the chest and dark-colored pants.

As the robber left the store, two people who were walking toward the store ran when they saw him. They heard a single gunshot, and a shell casing was found.

There was no report of injuries.

The robber may have left in a tan-colored minivan that drove on Hopwood-Fairchance Road toward Route 40.

Anyone with information about either robbery is asked to contact Fayette County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-404-TIPS or crimestoppersfayette@gmail.com.
