PITTSFORD, Vt. (WCAX) - Two nearly identical-sounding armed robberies took place Sunday in Rutland County.

Sunday around 11:30 p.m., police say a man went into the Cumberland Farms on Main Street in Wallingford, grabbed a soda and went to the counter. He then took out a knife and demanded the clerk hand over the money from the register.

Police say he ran off with the soda, cash and two packs of cigarettes. He was last seen wearing a baseball hat with a yellow brim.
