YUMA, AZ - Two armed robberies in three days. Sunday morning Police arrested two thugs, 26-year-old Joaquin Flores and 28-year-old Edward Stephen Nunez for robbing the McDonalds on 4th Avenue.
They used a knife to threaten an employee. Officer Joe Franklin with the Yuma Police Department says "They took him into the restroom demanded a certain amount of money from him when an agreement was made they exited the restroom."
Then last Friday another robbery went down just blocks from the McDonalds. Police say two men wearing masks robbed Domino's. One of them pointed a gun at an employee and demanded money. Monday night both men are still on the loose.
Officer Franklin says "Anybody that is doing an armed robbery I would definitely consider armed and dangerous, anybody." Police tell us criminals tend to strike more often during the holidays - when they're in desperate need of more cash, but keeping an eye out for criminals takes more than just the eyes of the police.
Officer Franklin says, "Everyone if you see something suspicious please call if something doesn't look right call. I'd rather you the public call us and it not be anything than not call us and it actually be something."
Overall as they do every holiday season - police say they plan to make sure officers maintain a higher presence - especially at strip malls. Officer Franklin says "We're definitely attempting to make more visible presence out there during the holidays. We have a lot of special events coming up also where we'll have more patrols out there."
YPD says they do not have a clear description of the two men who robbed the Dominos. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Yuma Police Department or call 78-Crime to remain anonymous.
