Stark County deputies are investigating two recent robberies.

On Friday, June 30 at 5:50 p.m., deputies were called to PNC Bank at 2800 Whipple Avenue Northwest. The suspect did not indicate that he had a weapon and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses, white gloves, blue jeans and boots.

Another robbery on July 3 at 6:02 p.m. had deputies responding to the Dairy Queen at 4110 Hills and Dales Road Northwest in Plain Township. The suspect in this case was wearing a blue shirt, gray short and had a white T-shirt tied around his head covering his face. This suspect was also wearing white gloves.

In the Dairy Queen incident, the suspect entered the store and demanded the cash drawer. He indicated he had a weapon, but did not show one.

The suspect took the cash drawer and was seen leaving in a red maroon four door car, possibly a Kia Rio, with a temporary license plate.

The suspect in both incidents is a white male standing between 5 feet 6 inches tall and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He is probably in his late 20s or early 30s and has a slender build.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the Stark County Sheriff's Office at 330-430-3800 or the Anonymous Crime Tip Line at 330-451-3937.
