IREDELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - It is unclear whether two robberies that occurred days apart in Iredell County are connected.

According to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office, a person robbed a business in the 3200 block of Taylorsville Highway in Statesville around 1 a.m. Thursday morning. Deputies say the robber displayed a gun, demanded money and then fled from the scene on foot. A second person stayed outside the business "as a possible lookout," deputies said.

A few days later, another business located in the 3500 block of Taylorsville Highway was robbed at gunpoint. A person reportedly carrying a long barreled weapon entered the business around 10 p.m. Saturday night, deputies say. The robber demanded money and then fled to a car that was parked nearby.

Deputies say the vehicle was a two door sedan and dark in color.
