The second happened about two hours later on Versailles Road at around 1 a.m. Thursday when police say the suspect jumped out of a car with a gun.

They say the victim in this case handed over his wallet, his shirt and the tacos he was carrying.

Then, at 1:45 a.m. on Red Mile Road, police answered an attempted robbery call.

They say a man was locked out of his apartment, waiting for a key to get in, when he was approached by a man with a gun.

When he found nothing on the victim, he ran off.

Police do not believe the crimes are related.
