The first crime happened just after 7 p.m. last night in the parking lot of the Book and Music Exchange on Triplett St.
Then at 10 p.m., detectives say they robbed a person staying at the 231 Motel located just down the street.
Police describe one suspect as a black man, the other as either being white or a light-skinned black man.
"Unfortunately, it's more than we would hope to hear," said Officer Michael Hathaway. "Periodically we do have these types of cases. Sometimes they prove to be something other than the robbery we have at hand, but unfortunately we do see these from time to time."
Owensboro Police need your helping catching the suspects. Just call (270) 687-8840.
