UPDATE: Macon police investigate armed robberies, carjackings on Riverside, Mercer University Drive

Macon police had another busy night as they are investigating two overnight armed robberies and two reported carjackings.

At about 4:30 a.m. officers responded to the Flash Foods across from Macon Mall at 3391 Mercer University Drive to investigate a hold up at the store.

Two masked men in dark clothing demanded money from the clerk and ran from the store with the cash.

About a half an hour later two masked men hit the Waffle House at 840 Riverside Drive and took money from cash register and customers in the restaurant before running away.

Police have not said whether they think the two armed robberies are related although the vague witness descriptions are similar.
