Tulsa police responded to four armed robbery calls in a two-hour span beginning late Tuesday night.

Cpl. R.W. Solomon, with the Tulsa Police Department, says the first armed robbery call came from a taco stand near East 41st Street and South 129th East Avenue.

Solomon says two men robbed two customers of their personal belongings at gunpoint at close to 10:30 p.m.

The victims believed the pair fled in a white four-door Honda.

No one was hurt.

An hour later, Tulsa police received a call from a Domino's pizza delivery driver who said he was robbed at gunpoint at the St. Thomas Square Apartments near East 61st Street and South Peoria Avenue.

The victim told police two men robbed him of cash and other belongings and then ran from the scene.

Police reported no injuries at this incident.

Just 15 minutes later and a couple of blocks away, Tulsa police received their third armed robbery call of the night.

This call came from the Savannah Landing apartments.

The victim told police a group of three to four men entered victim's apartment and robbed him or her at gunpoint.

The victim was unharmed.

Finally, at 12:45 a.m., Tulsa police responded to an armed robbery call at a QuikTrip in north Tulsa.

Solomon tells 2 Works for You that four men wearing masks robbed the clerk of cash and cigarettes.

"There was one that was armed with an eight-inch knife," Solomon said. "He was the one that was demanding the money and everything."

The clerk wasn't hurt. In each case, Tulsa police continue their search for the suspects.
