Suffolk Police are investigating another robbery at a Godwin Boulevard convenience store, but they do not believe it is related to others that have occurred recently.

Police say two suspects entered the 7-Eleven store near the intersection of Godwin Boulevard and Kings Highway in Chuckatuck shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The men displayed long guns and forced one of the three store employees to open a cash register. They obtained an undetermined amount of money and fled the scene on foot.

No one was injured during the robbery, city spokeswoman Debbie George said.

The first suspect is described as a black male, medium build, 5-feet-10-inches to 5-feet-11-inches tall, and wearing all black clothing except for a white T-shirt under an unzipped hoodie. He also wore a black and red, Spiderman-like mask. He possibly had braids sticking out of the mask.

The second suspect was described as a black male with a slim build, 5-feet-10-inches to 6-feet-1-inch tall. He also was wearing all black clothing and a black and gray Spiderman-like mask.

Police still are investigating other nearby recent robberies that are believed to be related to one another, George said.

A Sunoco in the 2700 block of Godwin Boulevard was robbed on Dec. 3 and on Dec. 11, the Tom & Jerry’s Convenience Store in the 5900 block of Godwin Boulevard also was robbed. Police believe they and another robbery that took place on the other side of Suffolk on Sunday are believed to be connected.

Around 9:40 p.m. on Sunday, two black men wearing all black entered the Holiday Food Store in the 600 block of Carolina Road and demanded money. One was carrying a gun.
