NEWARK - Newark police are investigating a pair of armed robberies.

Police say that on Tuesday night, just after 6 p.m., a man allegedly got out of his car at a gas station, held a worker at gunpoint and demanded money.

About 15 minutes later, police say two men entered Rita's Salon and held four people at gunpoint.

Witnesses say the men took each victim's cellphone and money before they fled the scene.

Police say it's possible the same suspects are responsible for both robberies.
