TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two Tulsa businesses were the sites of armed robberies overnight Sunday according to the Tulsa Police Department.

At about 1:10 a.m., the Fiesta Mart at 1500 S. Harvard was the scene of an armed robbery when two men entered the business. One suspect went behind the counter to get cash from the register. Police say he tried to break into the safe but was unsuccessful.

The other suspect confronted a customer and took his wallet. The two men left on foot to where police believe they had a waiting vehicle.

These men were described as two light skinned males with black ski masks. One was wearing all black and the other a gray hoodie and blue jeans.

Two men wearing black ski masks hit the Taco's Don Francisco restaurant at about 1:30 a.m. at 21st and Memorial. The owner and an employee were in the store when the two men with guns entered the business.

The suspects demanded money from the register. They left with money and a cell phone. A K9 officer was unable to track the men, leading police to believe they had a getaway car around the corner.

These men were described as either Hispanic or black men wearing black ski masks and black hoodies. One spoke Spanish.

These crimes are under investigation. If you can help police in either robbery, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS. Callers remain anonymous.
