Two women were confronted by a gunman who robbed them in store parking lots Wednesday night off Presidential Parkway.
In the first armed robbery, a woman had just left Best Buy with a new computer when the robber stuck a gun in her face and demanded the computer at about 8:30 p.m., according to a Macon Police Department news release.
Five minutes later, another woman was getting out of her car outside Petsmart when a gunman pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse. She handed it over and the gunman ran into a small dark colored vehicle and drove off, the release stated.
Macon police have not released whether they believe the same gunman is responsible for both crimes, nor have they issued a detailed description of the gunman other than he was a black man of unknown age. Anyone with information is asked to call Macon police at 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68CRIME.
