Groves police are investigating a robbery that took place Sunday night at the Shell station in the 5400 block of W. Parkway.

Police tell 12News a man, armed with a handgun, walked into the gas station just before 10 p.m.

Police say the man was masked, displayed a silver-colored handgun, jumped over the counter and stole money and cigarettes.

The cashier was not injured.

Police say this robbery has similarities to the weekend robbery in Nederland and that the two may be connected.

The Nederland robbery happened around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Twin City Liquor located 507 North Highway 347 (at the corner of Detroit and Twin City Highway.)

The 52-year-old store owner was shot and was conscious and able to speak with officers at the scene. He was taken to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth in stable condition.

The robber, in this case, is described as a white male 25-35 approximately 6 ft. 175-185 pounds with a sandy colored moustache and possible slight beard on his chin.
