AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Richmond County investigators are looking into two robberies that happened around the same time on Wednesday night.

The first robbery happened around 7:30 p.m. on the 300 block of Mike Padgett Highway at the Time Saver Food Store.

The first suspect is a black male and was wearing a camouflage jacket, a mask and had a handgun. The second suspect is a black male and was wearing a dark hoodie, dark jeans and had a handgun.

The second robbery happened just before 8 p.m. on the 1000 block of Central Avenue at Kuttin Up on Central barber shop. The shop was closed for business, but the owner told News 12 that a few regulars were there at the time.

Deputies say two black males came in pointing guns and demanding money. The victims say they got away with over $500.

The first suspect is a black male with a slim build who was wearing a camouflage jacket with a hood and a black ski mask covering his face. He held a black semi-automatic handgun in his right hand. The second robber is a black male and was wearing a dark jacket, a ski mask and was holding a silver automatic handgun in his right hand.
