COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Police say the same people may be behind a string of armed robberies spanning late Sunday night through early Monday morning.

Robbers struck first at a Circle K at Austin Bluffs and Templeton Gap Road just after 10:30 p.m., followed by a coffee shop minutes later in the same general area. Police say one suspect held up the convenience store -- flashing a gun while demanding cash -- but a second suspect may have joined during the second robbery.

After taking a break, a Diamond Shamrock near Austin Bluffs and Academy was robbed around 6:30 a.m. Two men were involved in that crime.

Due to where detectives are with the investigation, police have released limited details about each robbery, other than each unfolded in a similar manner and they are possibly connected. In the first and third robberies, the suspects got away with cash; police have not specified what if anything was stolen during the second robbery.

We will continue to update as we learn more.
