Investigators say the robberies took place about an hour apart Tuesday night.

One was in the area of 7th and Turney avenues. Two victims were robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of the bar.

The second was a few miles away at 10th Street and Indian School Road. Police say the suspects entered an open gate and robbed customers on that bar's patio.

Police say surveillance video at both sites helped lead them to the suspects.
