DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Denton are searching for a suspect in two convenience store robberies. The crimes took place at about 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, one at a 7-Eleven store in the 1200 block of McCormick Street and another at a Quick Track store in the 1700 block of Bernard Street.

At the first crime, the suspect entered the 7-Eleven store and approached the counter with an item to purchase. He then demanded money from the register, but the cashier refused to comply. The suspect ran from the scene on foot. While officers were investigating that location, authorities received a call about the second robbery. The same method was used, only this time the cashier did comply with demands. The two crimes happened about 10 minutes apart from each other.
