Two alleged robberies were reported Monday inside the Troy City limits and are being investigated by the Troy Police Department.

The first robbery reportedly occurred at 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Ingram’s Curb Market on Fairview Street.

The robbery allegedly occurred during daylight hours.

According to information released by the police department, the incident at Ingram’s Curb Market was a "strong arm" robbery, meaning the victim allegedly had money taken by force without the use of a weapon.

An undisclosed amount of money was taken by a suspect described as being a black male in his 20s dressed in blue jeans, a dark shirt and hat.

A second robbery at the Bee Line convenience store on South Brundidge Street was reported at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Information released by the department stated a suspect reportedly entered the store, approached the clerk and demanded money from her.

Sgt. Benny Scarbrough, public information officer for the TPD, said officers are unsure whether or not the suspect was armed.

The suspect, who left the scene on foot headed south on South Brundidge, took an undisclosed amount of money.

Both incidents are being investigated by the TPD’s Detective Division.
