DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - Dothan police are investigating a second armed robbery at West Main convenience store and gas station.

Officers say the robbery happened around 10:40 p.m. Monday. A male suspect entered into the store with a handgun and demanded money.

The same location was robbed back on May 10th. During that robbery the clerk was approached outside of the store after closing and forced back inside to get a bank bag. Police say during the second robbery, the clerk was alone inside of the store and the suspect got away with ah undisclosed amount of money.

"I would suggest being extremely alert," Cpl. Jared Bladen said. "Especially during the hours when you're closing the store or anytime you're by yourself late at night convenience stores are especially vulnerable."

The investigation into both robberies is ongoing. If you have any information, please contact the Dothan Police at 334-615-3000.
