Rockford police officers are searching for the person they believe is responsible for a pair of armed robberies.

The first happened at the Dollar General store in the 1000 block of Charles Street just before 4 pm, Wednesday. Police say the man held a cashier at gunpoint, grabbed some cash, and then fled the store.

The suspect is described as a black male between 30 and 40 years old with discoloration on his bottom lip.

Just minutes later, a suspect with the same description held up another Dollar General store in the 1400 block     of Kishwaukee Street. Police say the suspect approached the cashier, displayed a handgun and ran off with more cash.

No one was hurt in either incident.
