Colorado Springs police are investigating two different robberies, but they think the same robber is responsible.

The first robbery happened around 9:15 Monday night at El Ranchito, located at 1714 Monterey Road.  Police tell us a black man wearing a grey hoodie, black ski mask and black pants showed a black pistol to the victim and demanded money.

The victim gave the man money and he fled on foot.

The second robbery happened at the Citadel Mall shortly before 10:30 p.m. Police say two people were walking to their cars, when a similar suspect approached them and demanded money.  A second black male, wearing a white hoodie, was with the suspect for this robbery.

Both men fled on foot towards Platte Avenue and Chelton Road, police said.

Police believe the two robberies are connected.

If you have any information, please call police at 444-7000.
