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 at about 8:30 p.m. when a robber stuck a gun in her face and demanded her new computer, 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 got into a small, dark-colored vehicle and drove off, the release stated.
Macon police have not said whether they think the same gunman is responsible for both crimes, nor have they issued a detailed description of the gunmen.
