FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Fayetteville police said Sunday they had arrested three people after four armed robberies at businesses recently.

Police said two suspects came into Day N Nite just before midnight Tuesday, showed handguns and left with cash.

Two days later, around the same time, police said a suspect came into a Speedway store on Owen Drive, showed a gun and also left with cash.

Then, Saturday morning, within a matter of minutes, two Circle K stores on Owen Drive were robbed.

Officers said a suspect went to a clerk with items as if he was going to buy them, but then took out a gun and demanded money.
