Two armed robberies occurred at Mission stores on Tuesday.

The first one took place at 4:30 p.m. when a man began filling his bag with merchandise from a pharmacy on Mission Street, between 29th and 30th Streets.  A woman working in the store asked him to put the items back, and the suspect pulled out a knife and fled with the merchandise.  His heist included medication.

No arrests have been made.

Later, at 10:00 p.m., a man entered a store on Mission Street between 22nd and 23rd Streets, and acted as if he were going to make a purchase. However, when the cashier opened the register to make change, the suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the register. He took the money and fled on foot.

No arrests have been made.
