Two Colorado Springs convenience stores, both 7-11's, were robbed this morning (February 4th, 2009). The first store was robbed around 1:55am and the other 25 minutes later.
The man was wearing classic robber gear including a black mask, jacket, and blue jeans. His choice of weapon, however, was unique. It was described as a "Star Trek Klingon type sword". The sword is technically called a Batleth.
