CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Police are asking for the public's help to solve recent armed robberies in town.

Three men robbed the S and S Food Mart on July 21st, and only one masked man was involved in the robbery at the Asian Express. 

So far, they have no leads. The video shows two men rush into the gas station while a third acts as a look out at the door.

They emptied out the cash registers and then take everything from the two clerks.

Several customers were around the store at the time, and police are asking them to come forward with any information they may have--especially since the men may not have been masked before they walked around the corner. 

No one wants to get robbed and the person that's getting robbed may not have all the answers so it takes the people that see stuff outside to let us know what they see to help solve these crimes," said Detective Ketorie Sales with the Cordele Police Department. 

Video from earlier in July at the Asian Express about a mile up the road at the corner of 7th Street and 16th Avenue shows another violent robbery. 

You see only one man holding up the employees in this case.

In both of those robberies, the men wore masks and gloves and don't touch much in the store--leaving detectives little to work with.

If you saw anything, you're asked to call the Cordele Police Department.
