Two doughnut shops robbed

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - According to Baton Rouge Police two different robberies over the past three days with very similar facts involved in both cases.

The latest happened Monday morning at around 5:30 when Mike's Donut Shop on Jefferson Highway was robbed. Police say a man walked into the store with a handgun, demanded cash, then fled on foot.

Police describe him as a black male wearing a gray hoodie in his twenties.

On Saturday morning, the Mary Lee's on Florida was robbed. The suspect had a similar description in this case as well.

Baton Rouge Police stopped short of connecting the two crimes.

"It's still early on," says Cpl. Tommy Stubbs of the Baton Rouge Police Department. "I don't know if these two crimes are related or not. It's something that we do look at in an investigation like this."

Police are asking anyone with any information to call crime stoppers at 344-STOP.
