NORTH PARK — The same gunman robbed two people in separate stick-ups within an hour of each other on Monday evening, police say.

The first happened in the 4000 block of West Foster Avenue at 10:15 p.m. The second happened in the 4700 block of North Laporte Avenue at 11:10 a.m.

In both robberies police say the same gunman walked up to someone while armed with a silver handgun and demanded property.

In a community alert that went out Thursday afternoon, police say the gunman was last seen wearing a black long sleeve shirt and blue pants.
