Clemson Police officers are investigating two armed robberies that happened at a pair of fast food restaurants.

Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon said that the robberies happened over a three day span between May 14-17.

According to Dixon, the first armed robbery happened at 10 p.m. on May 14 at the Wendy's on Highway 123. Two black males, both armed with pistols, walked up to the rear dining room door and forced the employees to lay on the floor as they removed cash from the store safe. The two men then took the employees cell phones and fled the store.

"The employees were very shaken up pretty much they didn't want to work late anymore," Wendy's Store Manager Ana Elis.  

The same two men are believed to have robbed the Little Caesar's in downtown Clemson at 3 a.m. on May 17. According to Dixon, the men went to the side door, and although only one of the men entered the store, both were armed with pistols and were able to get away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Nobody has been injured in the robberies, Dixon said.

"We are very blessed to this point no one was injured and I want to get these individuals behind bars which is exactly where they belong before someone does get injured," Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon said.  

Dixon worries these armed robbers are likely to strike again.

"I look for it to happen any day, and secondly anyone who has a pistol that's using it for a crime is absolutely dangerous," Dixon said.

If anyone has any information about the robberies, they are asked to contact Clemson City Police at (864) 624-2000. A cash reward has been offered for information leading to arrest and conviction of the suspects.
