SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police are still investigating the possibility that two fast food robberies that happened on the same day are connected. On Thursday, detectives released two surveillance photos of the suspect and they are hoping you might recognize him. 

Both robberies happened on May 19th, with the first one happening at the Subway at Sprague and Freya. Detectives say the suspect walked in just after 10:00am, pulled out a gun and demanded money from the cashier. He left on foot. Witnesses described his has a white or hispanic man, about 5'7", 20-30 years old, with a medium build. Pictures from that robbery are attached to this story. 

The second robbery happened at the Taco Time in downtown Spokane about ten hours later. Much like the Subway robbery, the suspect pulled out a gun, demanded money and fled the scene. The only description available was he was about 5'5" - 5'7", white, and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, jeans and dark colored shoes. 

Right now, detectives continue to investigate if the two robberies are related.
