Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police Wednesday sought two men suspected of robbing an auto parts store in North Park and a sandwich shop in Mission Valley within the span of an hour.

The men, believed to be in their 20s, held up O'Reilly Auto Parts at El Cajon Boulevard and Illinois Street about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday, said San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

One of the men wore a gray hoodie and covered his face with a blue towel, Delimitros said. The other wore a white hoodie, had a white towel over his face and carried a handgun, he said.

About an hour later, two men wearing hoodies and towels over their faces robbed the Subway sandwich shop at 2075 Camino de La Reina. According to Delimitros, one also wielded a handgun like in the earlier robbery.

"The same two suspects were believed to have robbed the O'Reilly Auto Parts store in North Park an hour earlier," Delimitros said.

In both robberies, the men fled on foot with undisclosed sums of cash.

No injuries were reported.
