The suspects in both incidents remained at large late Wednesday, police said.

At 7:33 p.m., a black male demanded money from a clerk at Dollar General Store at 761 E. Wilson Blvd. Police said the male was in the store shopping and brought several items to the checkout counter, then indicated to the clerk that he had a weapon in his pocket. When the clerk refused to give the male money, he fled on foot, police said

At 7:52 p.m., a black male took an item to the checkout counter of Bob Evans Restaurant at 190 Railway Lane and threatened that he had a gun. The cashier gave the robber all the money in the register, and the robber fled from the restaurant in a vehicle. The robber never showed a gun, police said.
