2 men charged after Saskatoon businesses robbed with bats, pipes

Police were called to two armed robberies in a matter of 20 minutes in the early morning hours Thursday.

The first incident happened in the 100 block of Assiniboine Drive around 4:30 a.m.

One of the men wore a black ski mask, black jacket, blue hooded sweatshirt and black jeans according to police.

They then took off in a auto.

Twenty minutes later, another business on 33rd Street was robbed by two men matching the same description.

A week and a half earlier, the suspects again had a handgun at 7:19 p.m. on October 29 as they stopped a person on the street in the 900 block of West Grace Street and demanded their property, police said.

No injuries were sustained to any of the business employees during the robberies.

Patrol officers spotted the auto a short time later and made a traffic stop.

Saskatoon Police later spotted the suspect vehicle involved in the robberies and two men were arrested.

Charges are pending against the two men.
