Two armed robberies reported in Aberdeen Monday night

The Aberdeen Police Department is investigating two armed robberies that took place Monday night.

According to a new release from police, officers were sent to North East Road at 10 p.m., where a man said he had been walking when he was approached by two men, one of whom produced a knife and demanded money.

The robbers fled after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, police said. The only description police gave was the robbers are black males wearing dark clothing. The victim was not injured.

The second robbery occurred about 11:50 p.m. in the 400 block of Edmund Street. A pizza delivery driver told police that as he returned to his vehicle, he was approached by a man who displayed what appeared to be a long gun and demanded money.

The robber fled after receiving cash. The victim was not injured. The robber is described as a black man, tall and thin, wearing a ski mask and a black jacket with a hood.

Police said Tuesday they have no reason to believe the two crimes are related.

Lt. Fred Budnick, spokesman for the Aberdeen Police, said he did not have any more information as of Tuesday afternoon, adding that the two robberies are "still under investigation."

Anyone with information on robbery is asked to call the Aberdeen Police Department, Criminal Investigations Section, at 410-272-2121.
