Police are investigating two robberies that took place within a short time of each other but seemed to have been committed by different people in Bridgeport.

The first incident took place around 5 p.m., Friday, Aug. 9, near Central High School, said Terron Jones, spokesman for the Bridgeport Police.

During the alleged robbery, which did not take place at the school,  the victim told police that two men approached him and demanded his cell phone. No weapons were displayed, Jones said.

The second robbery took place around 5:19 p.m., Friday, at the Dunkin' Donuts, at 4150 Main St., when a black male wearing a hoodie and a pink towel over his head entered the business and demanded cash, Jones said.

The man fled south on Main St. No weapon was displayed, he added. The business reported $200 was taken.
