TULSA  -- Police are searching for two men that they suspect held up two QuikTrip stores Tuesday morning at knifepoint. 

The first armed robbery happened at about 2:50 a.m. at the QuikTrip near 47th and Yale. Police said two men, one holding a knife, rushed into the store and demanded money. The clerk complied, and the men ran out of the store with an untold amount of cash. The suspects were described as being in their late teens or early twenties. 

About 30 minutes later, police responded to another QuikTrip near 31st and 129th East Avenue. Officers said two men came into the store with a knife, demanded money from the assistant manager and took off with the entire cash drawer. Authorities say they left around the southeast corner. The suspects were described as black men, ages 20 to 25, wearing dark clothing and armed with a knife. 

Police said the store had other customers in it at the time, but no one was hurt or had anything taken. 

Police have vague descriptions of the suspects at this time because both men had their faces covered. Officers are now working to review surveillance footage from the stores. 

Police said it's also unclear if the same suspects held up another QuikTrip Monday morning at 21st and Memorial. They do, however, fit a similar description and also used a knife to take money from the store.
