BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

7-Eleven stores in Bethlehem seem to be under attack.

Police said the 7-Eleven at 1426 W. Broad St. was robbed shortly after midnight early Tuesday.

An armed man showed a semi-automatic handgun and made off with around $50 cash, police said.

The robber remains at large.

The 7-Eleven store at 2930 Linden St. was robbed shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday, police said.

This store was robbed by two men who each showed a black handgun. One was an Hispanic man, and another was a light skinned black or Hispanic man.

The two took around $300 cash and cartons of cigarettes.

Police said the store clerk didn't report the robbery at the time, but store employees reported the crime to police on Tuesday.
