Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            State police at Skippack are investigating two

attempted robberies that occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 24.

            According to authorities, a white male wearing an orange beanie and a red cloth across his face tried, and failed, to rob the Wawa convenience store at 3 Big Road in Lower Frederick as well as the Sunoco gas station at 112 Gravel Pike in Green Lane.

            No weapons were brandished during either incident, according to a Tuesday afternoon news release from the state police. In both cases, the suspect fled the scene on foot.

            The first incident allegedly occurred at 4:50 a.m., when the suspect entered the Wawa, located at the intersection of Routes 73 and 29.

            Wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, gray gloves and dark colored pants and sneakers, he attempted to grab a carton of cigarettes out of the cashier's hands and demanded that she give him the money from the register. When the cashier refused, the man left the store.

            Just before 6 a.m., the same suspect entered the gas station and demanded money from the cash register. But the cashier refused, according to authorities.

            Several people witnessed the Wawa incident, but none have been identified, according to the news release. Authorities are asking anyone who may have witnessed the convenience store crime is asked to contact the state police at 610-584-1250 and ask for the Criminal Investigative Unit.
