Two armed robberies in Warner Robins, a home and Dollar General

Warner Robins police are investigating two armed robberies late Friday night, including one at the Dollar General at 640 Dunbar Road.

The suspect in the Dollar General robbery was dressed in dark clothing and covered his face when he came into the business, Jennifer Parson, public information officer for Warner Robins police, said in an email.

Armed with a handgun, the suspect demanded and took an undisclosed amount of money from a store employee before leaving, Parson said. No one was hurt.

The incident happened shortly before 10:38 p.m.

About seven minutes earlier, police were dispatched to a robbery at a home in the 400 block of Dunbar Road.

The suspect was wearing khaki pants, a dark hoodie and his face was covered, Parson said.

The suspect came into the home armed with a handgun, demanded money and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, Parson said. No one was hurt.

Parson said it had not yet been determined whether the armed robberies were related.

The home and Dollar General are about four 1/2 miles apart.

Anyone with information about the armed robberies is asked to contact Warner Robins police Detective Paul Peck at 478-302-5380, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
