(KSL News) Police are investigating whether two overnight convenience store robberies in Salt Lake City are related.

Shortly after 10 o'clock, police say two suspects entered the Corner Market. One of the suspects knocked the clerk over the head, knocking him to the floor. He then opened the cash register and took out all the cash that was inside.

The clerk says he heard a second suspect, but never saw him.

The one he did see was described as wearing a gray sweatshirt.

Just seven minutes later, a 7-11 store on 114 West 13th South was robbed.

Police say four suspects entered the store. One went to the back and took some beer, and another one took off with some cigarettes.

They didn't take any cash, but they did threaten to shoot the clerk.

One of the men was said to be wearing a gray sweatshirt.

Lt. Sandra Urry/ Salt Lake City Police Dept.: "The detectives will see if they're really tied together. But because of the closeness in proximity and the description of the suspect with the gray sweatshirt, we're thinking it is very possibly related."

Police say they didn't show a weapon in either incident.

The suspects are believed to have gotten away in a two-door Chevy Nova hatchback with no plates.
