Suffolk County Police are investigating to determine if three 7-Eleven robberies that took place over the weekend may be connected.

The first robbery took place around 1:41 a.m., Saturday, May 18, at the store located at 613 Broadhollow Road in Melville, said Suffolk County Police.

During the robbery, a man entered the 7-Eleven and displayed what appeared to be a handgun, and demanded cash from an employee at the counter. The employee complied and the suspect fled the scene on foot. There were no injuries, police said.

The next robbery took place at the 7-Eleven at 56 Lowell Ave., in Islip Terrace around 2:15 a.m., Sunday, May 19, police said.

During the incident, a man displayed what appeared to be a handgun, and demanded cash from an employee. The employee complied and the suspect fled the scene on foot, police said.

The third robbery took place around 9:40 p.m., Sunday, May 19, at a West Babylon 7-Eleven, located at 140 Little East Neck Road, police said.

Once again, a man displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded cash, lottery tickets and cigarettes before running out of the store and fleeing the scene on foot. There were no injuries, police said.

 Detectives are investigating the possibility this incident is related to other recent robberies in the vicinity and are asking anyone with information to contact Major Case Unit detectives at 631-852-6555 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
