Robbers hit two difference convenience stores in Allentown Monday night, police said.

The first was at Top Star, at 2050 Tilghman Street around 10 p.m. by a single man who fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash. Police aren't sure if there was a gun involved.

There were no injuries reported.


The second robbery took place around 11:50 p.m. at the 7-Eleven at 1801 S. Fourth St. Police said two Hispanic men demanded money. One had a handgun.

The two fled toward the rear of the store--but it's unclear whether they got away with any money.

There were no injuries.
