Colorado Springs police said a man armed with a hammer and knife robbed a Diamond Shamrock store for the third time in the past few weeks.


For the third time since Halloween weekend, a Colorado Springs convenience store was robbed by a man wielding a hammer.

Police tell us a man armed with a knife and hammer walked into the Diamond Shamrock store near Palmer Park Boulevard and North Powers Boulevard shortly before 3 a.m. Friday.

He demanded cigarettes and money from the register.

Once he got what he wanted, he fled on foot.

The man was wearing a dark-colored ski mask, but the clerk could tell he was a white man in his 20s.

Police said this robber is probably the same man who robbed the store on Oct. 28 and Nov 4 in the same manner.

Officers ask that if you have any information, call Springs police at 444-7000. You can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
