Police in Mooresville are trying to find a man who committed two robberies in less than 20 minutes on Saturday.
The robber is identified as a black man with a gray hoodie. He was last seen driving a gray 2012 Chevrolet Malibu with N.C. license plate BKP-4826.
The first robbery was reported Saturday at 4:26 p.m., according to Mooresville Police. The robber, armed with a handgun, forced a delivery driver inside the McAlister’s Deli at 601 River Highway. He took the restaurant’s safe and left the delivery driver inside the building, unharmed. Police say the robber abandoned the safe near the deli.
At 4:39 p.m., police received a call saying someone had robbed a person at the Quick Trip convenience store about a tenth of a mile down River Highway. Police believe the same robber from McAlister’s took an employee’s vehicle and fled the area.
