At 6:22 p.m., a suspect walked into the Beaumont Liquor store at 3334 Northeast Killingsworth Street stating he had a gun and demanded money from the cashier. The suspect fled out the door with the money, but a second employee gave chase, tackling the suspect at NE 34th Avenue and Northeast Killingsworth Street. The employee recovered the money, but the suspect got away.
At approximately, 8:30 p.m., a suspect brandishing a knife, robbed the cashier at the espresso bar at Nordstrom located at the Lloyd Center. The suspect took money and fled the area.
