Moorpark police are investigating two robberies that occurred within a day of each other on Monday and Tuesday.

The first incident occurred in the parking lot of 11 West Moorpark Avenue at about 11:50 a.m. Moorpark police received a 911 call reporting a robbery that had just occurred.

The victim told police a suspect brandished a handgun and demanded the victim's money. A scuffle ensued and the suspect left the area with a female in a light colored sport utility vehicle.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 50s, around 5 feet 6 inches tall, 200 pounds, with black hair.

A second robbery was reported a day later at about 8:40 p.m. at 74 East High Street. A victim told officers he was in the rear parking lot of Corrigans when two male suspects pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded that he give them money. The victim complied and gave the suspects an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspects took the money and fled the scene in a light colored sport utility vehicle.

The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his mid 20s, around 5 feet 5 inches tall, with a slender build, and black hair. The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between 18 and 20-years-old, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, 220 pounds, with a shaved head.
