First-up was a station in Leoni Township on the 3400 block of Page Avenue.

Officials say the man walked in, showed a weapon but when he didn’t get the cash he demanded he left.

Then, just a few minutes later police say the same man went to the Citgo gas station on the 100 block of Main Street in the village of Brooklyn.
