The Valparaiso Quick Trip was robbed on Monday, possibly by the same man who robbed it at gunpoint on Friday, Nov. 22, Valparaiso Police said.

Last night’s robbery occurred at 9:14 p.m. The robber was last seen running eastbound from the store.

According to police, on Nov. 22 a male subject entered the store, pointed a handgun at the clerk, and threatened to shoot her if she did not give him cash from the register.

“At this time police believe it is very likely the same individual committed both robberies,” police said.

The suspect was described as a black male, 5’ 9’’ to 5’ 10’’ in height, wearing a black and red hooded sweatshirt with a distinct diamond pattern. The robber had his face partially covered, police said.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the robbery is urged to call the VPD at (219) 462-2135.
