Mishawaka 7-Eleven robbed overnight


Mishawaka, Ind. Police are now investigating three 7-Eleven robberies that happened in the past two days.

This time it happened around 12:15 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store located in the 900 block of West Douglas Road.

Officers say the store was robbed by two suspects, both black males. They say one suspect was heavy set, wore a black hooded sweat shirt, black jean shorts and had a mask over his face.

The other suspect was skinny, wearing a Chicago Cubs hooded sweat shirt and also had a mask over his face.

During the time of the robbery, police say the clerk handed the suspects money. The clerk was not injured during the incident.

Unfortunately, the suspects fled the scene before the police arrived with an undisclosed amount of money.

Because of 7-Eleven security policies, they say it is unlikely the suspect got away with more than $50 in cash.

This comes after two robberies at 7-Eleven stores on Thursday morning.

Two men, at least one of them armed, robbed the store in the 500-block of East LaSalle Avenue in South Bend around 12:45 a.m. Then another call came in for an armed robbery at a store in the 4100-block of Lincoln Way West just a short time later.

There's no word yet on if any of these incidents are connected. So far no suspects are in custody.
