Sheriff's deputies were called to the NOCO gas station on S. Transit Road about 3:20 p.m. after the store was robbed at knifepoint.
A white man entered the store, displayed a knife and demanded money. He then fled on foot outside toward the rear of the store and jumped over a fence leading into the Woodlands Manufactured Home complex. He then entered a white sedan which was waiting on Norwood Drive in the Woodlands and drove away. There were two other people in the waiting vehicle. The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s, standing about 5-foot-9 with a thin build and scruffy beard. He wore a blue knit hat with a Sabres and Labatt's Blue logo and his coat had a large British flag on the back. Anyone with information on the NOCO robbery is asked to call sheriff's investigators at 438-3338.
A second armed robbery was reported in Gasport about three hours later.
At about 6:30 p.m., a white male, 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, wearing a mask with holes cut in it for eyes, displayed a knife at the store. He then fled and was seen walking toward the railroad tracks to the north of the store.
