VIRGINIA BEACH -- Police are searching for two robbery suspects after a series of crimes in Virginia Beach. 

According to police, there have been three convenience store robberies and one attempted restaurant robbery since June 16 that share similarities.

"These cases appear to be linked by the suspect’s M.O. and description.  In all cases, the suspect(s) enters the business with a handgun and demands money from the clerk," police said in a press release.

No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
