Armed robbers have targeted the Mac’s convenience store on Seventh Avenue for the second time in a week.

Mission RCMP are investigating the incident which took place at about 4 a.m. on Tuesday, June 28.

Two masked suspects entered the store and threatened the clerk with a knife. Once again, the  clerk was tied up.

A customer entered the store during the robbery and the suspects fled the scene with several stolen items. Police believe this incident is related to a robbery with similar circumstances at the same store last week.

Police are also working with other police agencies to determine if these incidents are linked to any other occurrences in the Lower Mainland area.

The first suspect is described as a male wearing a grey hoodie and was carrying a black bag. The second suspect was a slim female wearing a black jacket, black shoes and black gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161.
