    Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, are investigating three separate robberies that occurred within 24 hours.

    The first of the armed robberies occurred at A&A Convenience at 540 Hall Street on Thursday afternoon. The clerk had been robbed the previous Sunday, so he was armed with a metal pipe and chased the assailant away before he was able to take money out of the register. The suspect, who brandished a knife, is described as a male with a thin build and dirty blonde hair. He was wearing a black bandana over his face and a gray, long-sleeve t-shirt with gray sweatpants. A second suspect, described as heavy-set man wearing a black number 99 football jersey, may have been acting as a lookout.

    Police responded to the second robbery at the Eddy Road Mobil gas station around 11:20 p.m. The clerk reported that a suspect, a man between 5'10" and 6' with a brown shaved head and wearing a black ECKO sweatshirt and black shorts, lifted up his shirt to show a black handle of a handgun and told her to give him money from the register.

    The third robbery took place at the Cumberland Farms at 275 Hanover Street. The clerk was robbed at knife-point on Sunday and then again early Friday morning around 2:55 a.m. The suspect is described as a male between 5'8" and 6' with short blonde hair and blue eyes. He was seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue sweatpants with a gray stripe.

    The robberies are under investigation. No surveillance images are available at this time.
