LITTLE ROCK Authorities are investigating a pair of robberies that occurred within about two hours of each other Wednesday night at businesses less than a quarter-mile apart on Cantrell Road.
Officers were first called about 9:05 p.m. to the Wendy's at 7312 Cantrell Road after two men entered with handguns and demanded cash. After getting an undisclosed amount, they fled on foot.
Less than two hours later, authorities were called to the Exxon gas station at 7600 Cantrell Road. In that robbery, two men entered, pointed a handgun at a clerk and grabbed money from the cash register. The men also took a cell phone before running away, police said.
