Council Bluffs police say that a convenience store was robbed late Monday, the second holdup at the Kum & Go in three days.
Police said they did not know if the robberies at the store at 2024 Fifth Ave. were connected.
Monday, just before midnight, a man entered the Kum & Go and walked toward the soft drink coolers in the back of the store, police said. The man then took a bottle of soda pop to a clerk at the store’s front counter. He reached into one of his pockets, pulled a handgun, pointed it at the clerk and then demanded all the cash in the register.
The man told the clerk that he “had 10 seconds to open the drawer or he was going to kill him,’’ police said.
The man then fled from the store with an undetermined amount of cash.
Police said their investigation into the two robberies continues.
