The fourth armed robbery in the Fargo-Moorhead area in less than a month, and the third within the past week, was reported Tuesday evening.

An employee said four men came into the Stop-N-Go at 1462 N. Broadway in Fargo around 7 p.m. Tuesday and demanded money. One of them displayed a gun, police said.

Descriptions of the suspects have not yet been released. Sgt. Carlos Nestler said the employee described three black men and one white or Hispanic man.

Nestler said Tuesday that the lone employee was not injured, but was very shook up.

The store employee said the four men came into the store, took some property and then demanded money, Nestler said. The amount of money or property taken was not disclosed.

Nestler said the men are believed to have headed west outside the store, but it was unclear whether they fled on foot or had a vehicle nearby.

The Moorhead K-9 unit was dispatched to the scene but was unable to pick up a trail. The suspects may have dispersed after the robbery, Nestler said.

He said some evidence was collected at the scene, but it was not known if the items were related to the crime.

Nestler said it was not yet clear if Tuesday's robbery could be related to a similar crime in Moorhead on Thursday.

Moorhead police are still looking for three black males after an armed robbery of the Stop-N-Go at 1702 30th Ave. S. around 10 p.m. last Thursday.

On Jan. 23, a Stop-N-Go at 901 Main Ave. E. in West Fargo was also robbed about 2:44 a.m. by two suspects wearing masks.

On Friday, the Western State Bank, 4302 13th Ave. S., was robbed by a lone man who indicated that he had a gun.

The man is described as a middle-aged white man with grayish-blue eyes. He was wearing a winter facemask at the time of the robbery.

No arrests have been made in any of the four robberies.

Anyone with information regarding these crimes should call the Red River Regional Dispatch Center at (701) 451-7660.
